I'm sure she was a little blonde beauty in her day, but it was time for an update. :) I love the clean lines of this buffet and the hardware, but the color just looked washed out.
I was going to leave the whole top wood, but when I sanded it down I realized the middle was a very thin veneer and spots didn't look very good. The outside edge was solid wood, so I decided to leave it. Love the contrast.
The original hardware got lost on all of that light colored wood. It has a great patina. I love how it just pops now and how the copper edge picks up the warmth of the wood trim.
Are you wondering why one of the pulls is missing? I will just say that one of the pieces of hardware ended up on the end of a fishing pole and now a new part is being machined. Yah.
This turned out to be a gorgeous piece of furniture.
