Vintage Buffet in Iron Ore

A friend contacted me about buying this buffet from her.  I knew right away I couldn't pass it up.  I love that it's smaller and it's simple lines.  I didn't like the pulls on the drawers and the doors, but I knew that was an easy fix.  I also am not in love with waterfall style furniture but I wanted to give this one a modern twist. 

 I had my original idea for this one and then, all the sudden, I was unsure.  I went back and forth in my head about what to do and the more I thought about the less sure I was.  So, I asked my hubby what he thought and he said, "Slate gray."  Well, he doesn't offer up his opinion very often and I was thrilled he spoke up (and it was one of the colors I was already considering) so I decided to run with it (for him ya know). ;)

She had refinished it once so the finish was in excellent condition.  Thank you Julie! :)


I love the moody feel of this piece now.  It's not too feminine and not too masculine.  And, I'm thinking this graphite color is one of my new faves!

It had a gorgeous cherry top.  Tweet twoo!

 The drawer bottoms were a little iffy so I lined them with paper.  
*Tip: Seal them with Modge Podge for easy cleaning!

 I. Absolutely. Love. These. Knobs.!!

 These too!  I used gild creme to highlight them. 

He said he really likes it so I'm a very happy girl! 


  1. Just beautiful. I love this color, and the transformation from the clunky drawer and door pulls to the elegant knobs.

  2. BRAVO!!!!!

    This looks amazing- seriously I would never ever have guessed that ugly duckling could become such an awesome piece. WOW. You got it going on, girlfriend. Your visions are incredible.

  3. Absolutely Beautiful!!! Love Love Love!!!

  4. What brand/color of paint? I love it!

  5. Love this color- you always do beautiful work!

  6. Love your work. This waterfall piece really came together nicely. I've redone a few of these. by the way, that's walnut, not cherry. Most of these pieces from the 30's and 40's were done with mahogany and walnut. Cherry wood is a bit lighter and has a pink undertone.
