Our town has a new store and it is my newest addiction! It is a small business operated buy a really nice couple. They go to auctions and estate sales and buy all kinds of random things from furniture to home decor and everything between. It is almost like a garage sale and thrift store combined in one place; plus the prices are really cheap! So far I have bought quite a few things from this store. A while ago I came across this buffet and I had to have it. It took a while for me to convince Trent that it was worth the money but he finally caved in and went to help me get it home. I have been hearing about how much he hates it since!
He can hate no longer! I finally finished the project and I am in love! I knew when I first saw it that it had a ton of potential! All it took was some primer, a few coats of paint, and some spray paint for the hardware. And let me tell you- that was a struggle. I wanted to just buy new hardware that was more modern but failed to do so because the size was so weird (I couldn't even special order it at the stores in my area). My options were to putty the holes and drill new ones or spray paint. Spray paint won the battle and I am so glad I kept the old hardware! There is just so much detail in the old ones! My poor husband... all this has done is make me want to go buy more and try to make something else as beautiful! Sorry hunny!
