Antique buffet in Cream (SOLD)

Hi folks!  You may have noticed a few changes to my blog (new header photo, etc). I'm working to make it a bit more user friendly (and prettier!) so please excuse any changes you might see in the next few weeks as I try to figure out things like custom sidebars and nav bars and html coding.  :-)  Totally not my thing.  It took me 3 hours to change the photo at the top.  Is that sad?  I think it probably is.  :-)  

Ah well.  Painting furniture is more my thing.  ;-)  And speaking of painting furniture, I've got a gorgeous antique buffet all ready to go.  Isn't it lovely? 

I hope you'll forgive me for the quality of the photos on this one.  I usually work hard to be sure the photos of my pieces are artistic and a great representation of the color, etc... but that requires moving the piece inside to my makeshift photography studio.  Otherwise known as my foyer. :-)  However - my sweet husband, partner in crime, and primary behind-the-scenes-muscle is currently out of commission with a slipped disc in his back.  Poor guy.  I'm able to get smaller pieces in by myself to photograph, but this beauty is large and oh-so-heavy.... so I had to photograph it in my garage.  Please excuse any painting mess you see in the background.  :-)  Hopefully my awesome husband will be back to helping me lift things really soon!

Until then - let's talk about this buffet.  I am always THRILLED to find a lovely antique buffet at an estate sale - and this is one I just couldn't pass up.  It's solid wood (cherry, I believe) and has an awesome solid wood back as well.  I LOVE pieces with a solid back on them.  Just screams quality to me.

This buffet has storage space galore - three dovetailed drawers across the top, a smaller lined silver drawer, and four doors across the bottom.  The two side doors open to shelf storage while the center doors have open storage behind. 

I really love the detailing along the sides and the original vintage hardware. 

I've painted this buffet in a lovely shade of deep cream and given it a distressed finish, with clear wax as a protector. It measures 60'' long x 35 1'2'' tall x 20'' deep and is priced at $500 (SOLD).

If you're interested in purchasing this buffet, please send me an email by clicking on the "Contact Me" tab above - thanks!

Next up - a great mid-century mod side table!
