Early birthday present

I have been eyeing an old buffet on Kijiji , it was well over priced in my opinion , but my patience paid off finally it was reduced to what I thought it was worth .

Solid wood , dove tails , a decent piece of furniture that has been sadly neglected for some time.
The positives are ;
solid wood
nice shape
drawers; one is a cutlery drawer
lots of storage
low profile ; makes it ideal for using as a "buffet" after all it is a buffet
its going to look so cute after I give it my loving touch.

That buffet is gorgeous and once you have given it the white paint treatment (hopefully) it will look amazing. Don't you just love it when the reduce the price on much wanted items. I have my eye on a beautiful wicker couch at the moment. I do not need another couch but its gorgeous I am slowly waiting for the price to be reduced. Lets hope my patience pays off. Sandy

Sooooo exactly what I need to put under the TV. (we want to get rid of the entertainment mammoth and put the TV on the wall with a buffet like this underneath-I'll cut out a door and put wire or glass in it for the components)I've been waiting for one to pop up in BC! One day...Can't wait too see how it turns out!

Beautiful buffet. I can't wait to see what you do to it. I haven't been in the blogging loop for a while so I wanted to say that I have been praying for your mom and I hope all is well with her. On a brighter note, I love the islands you've been blogging about lately. I actually made the decision this week to eventually get ride of our kitchen table and extend our island to take over most of the kitchen. Thanks for the inspiration once again.

Take care,
Lisa
