Best Buffet In Town!

Today I bring you a refurnished buffet. Here are the before pictures. You can see the buffet has a beautiful shape but it was suffering from some years of neglect. On the drawers the veneer was chipped so bad I had to steam it off. (Word of caution: Don't use your main iron. Buy  a spare!)

The top of the center section is actually ... SURPRISE! A silverware drawer.

The decorative piece on the bottom had been gnawed to death by a dog but luckily, I found a matching piece in one of the drawers. I very carefully popped the old piece off and glued the new piece in its place.

Without further ado, here is the after! I painted the buffet a bluish-gray and stained the top and the decorative medallions on the front the same color. (In some of my pictures they don't look the same but unfortunately the glare from the sun and the reflection from my house distorted the pictures.) Isn't she the best buffet in town?!
