But, I did get the wacky buffet re-worked and back into the shop this week! Thought I'd share that with you today!
I bought this buffet at an auction almost two years ago.
I took it into the shop, and there it sat. For two years.
I even put it on sale for 1/2 price.
I couldn't figure out what the problem was!
So I took a hard look.
And then I found it.
Do you see it?
There it is!
The doors are whack!
When they're closed, there's a gap at the bottom.
No gap at the top! What's up with that?
Well, come to find out, the side of the buffet is warped.
No fixing that!
So I decided to take the doors off and give it a face lift.
I stripped and refinished the top, then gave the base two coats of ASCP Emperor's Silk. I decided not to paint the drawers and love how that turned out!
The inside got a coat of a brown latex to help it blend with the mahogany top.
I gave it a coat of clear wax and then dark wax, and found the perfect baskets at Michael's.
Now it's back in the shop, just in time to decorate for Christmas!
I gotta be honest. I'm liking it better!
Now those doors aren't going to waste!
Think I'll paint a sign on them.
Stay tuned for that... when I come up for air again!
