About 15 years ago before kids, my husband and I were frequent auction goer’s picking up anything our budget allowed to outfit our Victorian home. The thrill of bidding on an item and actually winning the” prize” of course is the best part…that’s exactly how we felt when we purchased this buffet. We scored big time on the price and couldn’t wait to get it home and add it to our very empty dining room.
Over the years it has taken center stage in various rooms only to be relegated to the basement a few years ago (can you believe I even tried to sell her multiple times…NO WAY!) I was growing tired of the dark wood but felt like I should’nt paint it. Some people say that you should NEVER… I mean EVER paint “fine” wood. What do you think? Well whatever the “rules” are I was going to break them. I grabbed my Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue chalk paint and went to town.
I’m so glad I took a chance, broke a few rules, and gave it new life with paint and glass knobs.
Once again it takes center stage…and something different has been moved to the basement…oh well!
