This has been the summer of buffets! We are overloaded.
I never grow tired of buffets.
Perhaps it's because I don't have one myself.
I always say, "I'm going to keep this one," and then I never do because
I find something else I'm going to keep!
Here's the before...
When work commenced on this piece, it was so stinkin' hot and humid outside
I couldn't even take a picture without my lens fogging up.
The sides were not repairable and had to be replaced, as did the veneer on the doors.
We cut some backer-board to size and glued it on with clamps.
The doors were pretty plain then, so we glued some wooden decals on
to make her a bit more regal.
And regal she is... like a fortune teller!
After much sanding, puttying, repairing, glueing, priming, painting, and poly-coating,
she is finally complete.
Ha, I see myself in the gazing ball now-- soooo not supposed to be in there!
Her drawers feature crystal knobs...
...her interior spaces are white-washed and clean...
