I looooovee them.
But it seems that the big thing these days is "shabby chic" and doing alot of distressing on furniture (painting it, then sanding off some of the paint to look old and worn in).
I gotta tell ya kids, I hate it. I can apprecaite the beauty of it and if its your style then rock on sister, but for me- I want a nice glossy clean finish. I get one smudge or scratch in my paint and you better believe I'll have a few curse words flying and then be right in there with some touch up paint.
I don't know what struck me to have to write about this, but I just can't get over how many people are taking antiques and refinishing them with distressing. It just doesn't do it for me!
So on that note, here is the buffet table I bought on Craigslist.
|Ya, Ya my picture is crooked I know.|
I haven't decided what to do with this yet.
Either go modern- paint it black, replace all the handle with shiny clean stainless pulls and put in frosted glass,
leave the wood finish (since it is clean, in good condition and kinda matches the kitchen cabinets it sits by), still replace the pulls with some updated black ones, and then do I have no idea what with the glass.
On a fun side note- we have so many kithcen cabinets in the new house that they are comically empty. So, I bought this piece because the space needed something and it was perfect- but it is totally empty, with no plans to put anything in it, LOL.
