I pulled this old Buffet out of my daughters garage last week. I originally purchased the buffet years ago at an auction in Daytona Florida. I always look for flea markets, auctions, yard sales and the such when we go on vacation. I bought this piece for around $20.00. My husband thought it was ridiculous to haul it back to Kentucky even if it was a great deal. I also purchased a dry sink for $3.00 at the same auction. He has scoffed over the years reminding me, "see that piece was not worth the trip back"!
Well.......needless to say...he is eating his words now!
I cleaned the piece up with Murphy oil soap and warm water. I then got out the ole handy dandy black flat paint. After removing the antique hardware. I pained the entire piece black.
I sanded the edges and a few areas to make it look warn. I then top coated the whole thing with a quick dry polyurethane.
It turned out great! Just goes to show..........A little paint can make anything look better!
After I look at this amazing ole buffet and the change that has taken place I am reminded of the word of God in 2 Corinthians 5:17, it says, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone and the new has come!" Wow, what a wonderful thought! I wish I had taken a picture of the buffet before I started. What you see now could never begin to show you just how far the buffet has come. My life is much the same way........what I used to be and what I am now is so different. I have truly changed. Thanks be to the amazing work of the Holy Spirit, I too, have been recreated!
Until next time.....happy decorating and may you be truly blessed!
