I love old buffets. Especially when they're on legs (you should know all about my leg fetish by now!). When I bought this I didn't look too closely until I got it home. My mistake, but I'm glad I took it anyway. When my 12 yr old son saw it he said, "Mom! Why did you buy that? It's ugly!!" lol He has no vision.....yet. :)
check out her paint job--for some reason it reminds me of pool balls (don't ask me why, lol)
Oh, the joys of peeling veneer! This is what I didn't realize when I picked her up. There was a piece of wood over the bottom edge covering up where it was peeling. I should have caught it then, but if I had I'm not sure I would have brought her home. So, I guess it worked out ok. :) I love the internet--found a great idea that made removing this beastly stuff a little easier. I just took a wet towel and a hot iron and held it place for about a minute. It softened the veneer and loosened the glue and peeled right off (with a little elbow grease).
I just love the chippy look!!
I've become obsessed with lining the drawers! Some of them are pretty bad and need a little help. These weren't too bad, but I just like how finished it looks.
She's found a new home already and I must admit--I'm a little jealous!! (shhhhh.....)
