Fabulous Find

I have always had a thing for buffets.  We had one in our dining room growing up and I have wanted one ever since.  On the rare occasion that I find one, they are always too expensive or I am too cheap.

This week I happened to be in unfamiliar territory and popped in a thrift store.  There it was.

Look at her in all her glory.

Lined drawers.

Gorgeous detail and hardware.

buffet 005

Beautiful legs.  Yes, that is paint on my garage floor – don’t judge.

Oh the beauty behind the doors!

I do not have a clear vision of what this baby will look like.  I do know that the sloppy paint job was done with oil based paint, the top is a disaster and the black is not doing the details any justice.

It will be a lot of work.  And she will have to wait in line behind the many other projects.  But she is beautiful and I cannot wait to transform her!

Have a great weekend!

Is this finally going to be a project that stays at home when it is finished?
