I think I've already discussed how I feel about oak. I will probably receive hate mail for this next comment, but I doubly despise tiger oak. I really just don't like it.
Does that mean there's something wrong with me??
Well, no matter, cuz I still don't like it! ;)
This buffet came to my shop yesterday and I absolutely love the simple lines and queen anne legs, but not so much what it was made of. So, I was secretly happy because I knew I could cover it all up with paint! ;)
Love a buffet and just adore a leggy one!!
The pics make the finish look blotchy but that's actually light reflecting off the grain (the poly makes it look that way in the pics). There was way too much light in the room when I took these.
Why was there so much light in the room? Oh, yes, because we received a couple more inches of that blasted white stuff!! This is the perpetual winter! Mr. Frost refuses to release his icy grip on WI. I'm thinking a good man hunt is in order (I know, I know. He's adorable in the The Gaurdians, but I HIGHLY doubt he REALLY looks like that! ;) ).
All that snow and huge, south facing windows makes for crummy pictures!!
Ok, I'm done whining! :)
The original hardware had such a great patina on it that I left it alone *gasp. It's hard to believe, but I just couldn't paint over it. It almost seemed criminal. ;)
I will make an exception to my former comment about tiger oak. This top did turn out beautifully.
