my newest project
As the summer draws to an end my list of projects seems to become more desperate hence I have put blogging on the back burner. So apologies if I made any one worry!
You may look at this buffet and wonder why I bought it – it certainly has a very 90’s color scheme, and someone seems to have given up on searching for replacement hardware … I loved it – it JUST fit into my boyfriend’s dad’s Honda Fit AND was only 2.60 at my favorite junk shop. I just couldn’t resist its clean lines – It took some elbow grease and an eclectic sander and electric planer (which btw is one of my favorite tools), a new coat of paint , new hinges (2 were warped and all of them were painted over) and some new pull handles (1.29 each at Lowes!)
it was originally 5.25! but it was half off due to the end of season sale
one of the first flaws I had to fix both the door had to be planed down, the bent hinges replaced and the piece glued together
the veneer on the top had to be fixed as well – I ended up just scraping the whole thing off after a partial removal-patch job didn’t work so well.
i just love drawer dividers
So here it is folks – the finished product (please be nice and don’t look too hard at the messed up wall or the horrible molding – previous remuddlers were not so kind to the original details in this wing of the house).
p.s- I removed the lacquer from the pulls so they should dull to a classy brass soon :).
