~Buffet~ Before and After~

Do you remember the old buffet I posted about?
Well, I finally finished it! This is the before picture;...And this is after!
I am very happy with how it turned out.
I love the way it looks in my entry way.
Now that it is finished and I see how it looks I'm thinking that I might add some more of the stain to antique it a little more and make it a little darker around the appliques.
I know there are some that think it is awful to paint wood but I am happy to report that this buffet was mostly veneer and the one part that is a nice piece of wood is the top and I did stain and polyed it. I personally love the look of painted furniture but I also understand those that love the wood look.

I had a lot of fun doing this project I am happy with how it turned out and I am happy to check this one off the list.
The bad thing is,...now every time I look at a piece of furnitur in my house I picture how it would look painted. Oooo, I just added several more projects to the list! I better go find my paint brush. hehehe


  1. Waaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy Cute!

    It looks perfect. I love the little lamps on top, too.

  2. That turned out great! I love this look with the darker top and lighter bottom.

  3. This is fantastic...looks like a whole new piece. I just so happen to be having a before and after party, I would love for you to come check out. Also, FYI every Friday, I have a thrift party too.

  4. Wow! That buffet was in such a sorry state, but you made it look fabulous! Great job! Coming over from Debbie's Before & After Party.
