You guys, we found something really cool! It’s been awhile since I’ve featured a fabulous find, but I’m happy to tell ya about the great deal we got on an antique buffet. Or maybe it’s a console table? Whatever it is, I like it.
It’s solid wood and made well all the way around.
It’s missing the middle drawer, but my husband will work some magic and make it look like it was supposed to be that way. Maybe we’ll throw some baskets there, or oh ummm what about a wine rack of some sort?? Yeah, that could be good. Check out those casters.
The original drawer hardware had been removed (darn!) and I REALLY wish the star-shaped hardware would have been left on too. You can see the impressions where the stars were.
Maybe I can find some similar stars. Anybody have any ideas there?
It’s pretty beat up, but beat up means it has character. It has a story (that we’ll probably never learn, but we’ll just imagine it originated in an old mansion or something. That sounds more interesting
Actually, it won’t be keeping this outfit on. We’re not sure what look we want to go with yet. I kind of want to go bold!
Maybe something like this:
You know green is my favorite color if you’ve seen our office.
I just noticed the pulls on that green piece are the same ones I pointed out in this post about knobs I love!
I’m really into peacock blues too, like this:
Its new home will be in the front room, and I’ve been thinking for awhile now that it’s time to change the wall color in there. I want something more neutral, but still something light and airy since there’s only one window in that room. I’ll dive deeper into that another day though.
Oh I just got another idea. Maybe after I paint the walls, I’ll paint the new buffet the color that’s on the walls now?? Who knows, decisions like this are fun though!
I’m really diggin’ this detail because it resembles the look of Greek key.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot- the price! It was listed on Craigslist for $125 and we took it home for $70! Not too shabby for an antique!
What have you picked up lately?! Do you like our new buffet?
