Like any girl who can barely spell “Hezbollah” would do…….I call my husband knight in shining armor in a panic…..and beg him to drop everything he is doing at his job to help me purchase the buffet.
He was there in 30 minutes. He pretended to see the potential in the piece and ignore the obvious water damage and animal chew marks on it. He is a gem that man.
By then the store was Eskimo-less and I felt comfortable again.
The teal buffet had the place of honor my husband’s side of the garage for a few days while I glazed it, restained the wood and top-coated it. My favorite top coat is Modern Masters MasterClear Supreme – I use this on all my painted furniture!
Then it was all painted ….. but I couldn’t decide on my handles/pulls.
My neighbor Jody has incredible taste…..so I drug her over invited her over to my garage studio to help me choose between 3 different knobs.
She insisted that gaudy beautiful, crystal knobs are my trademark. I think I am ok with that. And so we went with the old standby. (You can find some here.)
My hubby helped me transfer the piece over to Liberty for the Red Apron sale.
And one of my lovely blog followers came to buy it.
I think sometimes it’s easy to look at something and not realize the amount of work it takes to get a piece of furniture from an ad on a computer screen to a store to be sold. I would like to think I nearly lost my life over this piece…..but we all know I am being a little dramatic.
