Dear Jenny

This new piece is for you!
I hope you love vintage!




Jenny is a BFF and we're having her wedding shower at our home this weekend.





Hopefully, the weather will agree and we'll have a fabulous day and some excellent photography!

This new piece is named "Jenny" because it's for Jenny  :)

Here's a before photo.

Actually that's not the piece itself, but looks just like it.  Ours was darker and yuckier.

I've lost all my before photos.  I did have them!  They are just not where I thought they were!

I found this image and it is the same antique buffet.

But ours needed a lot more work.

The doors were off and it needed a whole new top AND sides AND back.

It kicked our butts.

Dan worked really hard on the construction aspects of this one.

We literally just finished it minutes ago and the shower is in two days!!

This antique buffet would be perfect as a buffet or dry bar for your dining room!

Here goes!












YAY!!

Wedding Blessings!!

That is beautiful, Andrea. It looks very vintage, which I love. I am having a wedding shower at my house in a couple of months for Nel. This post gave me some ideas. I love the wine bottles. You are so very creative, my friend. Have fun this weekend, and please do show more pictures of the party. I need the all help I can get. hehe
