$35 on the side of the road

If you recall back in Nov I posted about a buffet I picked up on the side of the road for $35 (Isn't that how most Mainers shop?).    Well, as my gift for Christmas I requested to my husband that it be finished, by him.  He put the final coats of paint on last weekend.  Only two weeks after Christmas- not too bad.    I have to say it came out AMAZING!

Let's just remember how UGLY it was!

After shots!  I kept the three handles for the middle drawers.  New glass handles on the side drawers are from Anthropologie.
Paint is Rust-Oleum- espresso.  Purchased right from Home Depot. 


  1. Love Anthropologie - great choice!!! Did you order or go there?

    THIS LOOKS AH-MAZ-ING! Another amazing makeover!

  2. Holly, you have a great eye and Dave does a fantastic job refinishing! Jan

  3. Looks great!! You and Dave are a good team.

  4. I need a crafty husband... and more than 800 square feet. Hmmmm...
