I bought this buffet from a very nice old gentleman who said it was his grandmother's and came all the way from Norway. Ok, I think I've become a skeptic in a lot of things, but I am choosing to believe him because it would be a really neat story if it is true. ;) Regardless of its origins I loved the shape of it (I cannot say no to a buffet on legs--it is almost impossible!!).
I think I've been having a mild case of painter's block because it took me forever to decide what I wanted to do with this one, too. It just didn't seem fitting to do it in any color but black or white. I asked a friend, she said "white", I said ok! :) Problem solved. It had a beautiful wood top on it so I left it natural and am so glad I did.
The man had been stripping it with a pocket knife! I can just tell you that I am thankful for my orbital sander!!
Note the totally mismatching and missing hardware--makes me sad when the hardware is gone :( .
She just has such a classic, simple shape and I love it in white.
Isn't this top so pretty?! It's stained in Dark Walnut by Minwax.
I wish I had a before of this drawer. It was lined in dirty, nasty, old green felt. I almost threw up in my mouth a little when I opened it. I disassembled the entire drawer, ripped that awful stuff out, sanded it all down, and lined the drawer bottom. Much better! Just love a simple stripe now and then. ;)
I painted the inside beige the first go round and it was so BORING--so I opted to match it to the drawer liner. Love how fresh it looks! Who wouldn't want to store their dishes (or whatever) in here?
I never get tired of white with a wood top and black hardware!
