This is by far my favorite piece of furniture that I have worked on. I feel so proud after a completed project like this. This original 1968 dining buffet was purchased from a great local thrift shop Anna's Angels (shop by if you haven't yet) for a great deal. I just fell in love with it but I had to wait to get the approval from the hubs. There was a lot of convincing that needed to be made. He didn't see the vision that I had. I won (as always) and took this beautiful piece home with me for some needed love.
I used a metallic spray paint to enhance the gold drawer pulls. I think it was subtle but worth painting.
It now looks great as a buffet table or console table. BUT, this wasn't my intention. We need a new media stand so the transformation must continue.
We removed teh top drawer because it was the best size for the cable box and XBox.
We then drew and cut a slot in the back for the media cords using a jigsaw.
I invite you all to come over (it would be nice to have a party excuse) to come and see our great media stand. Movie night!
