Buffet for Your Holiday

I just have to say that 'Patrice' turned out to be a class-act.






Oh yeah, when I first picked her up out in rural Indiana, she was in bad shape.

(Oh yeah, and the ride out there- sheesh!  HALF of the roads out there weren't marked.  I had to pick my way and got lost several times.)






I found her on Craig for a song.  She was being stored in a garage without a door to keep out the moisture.  Because of that, she was succumbing to the elements.  Her drawers had all swelled and stuck (as you can see by the drawer front that CAME OFF when I pulled on it).  This 1940s baby was crying out for help.

Mr. TP fixed her up nice for me.

Then came the cosmetic makeover!

A little white paint and some distressing later...

we are one classy country buffet!




































Thanks for visiting!  I will be linking up this week with:
