So several months ago I posted about a buffet I bought from Craigslist here.
I have been dying to finish this project and after what seems like eternity its finally DONE!
What took forever, besides finding time to work on it, was the buffet had one missing piece from the drawer pull. I searched and searched for a matching replacement and just couldnt find one. I didnt want to replace all of them because I thought the orignal ones were so beautiful. I finally ended up with something I liked but didnt really match so I moved the mismatched ones to the drawers on the sides.
Here are the ones that came with the buffet. I had taken the before, during and after pix when I painted them, but I cant find it? Did I upload them? Did I delete them from my camera? Oh well Im too ansty to post this Im not looking. So Here are the drawer pulls after I cleaned them with acid and spray painted them black. Now that they're on, I think I want to paint them brushed nickel.
So on to my hard work. I took appart the buffet, removed the hardware and glued all the loose pieces.
Sanded it down, which wasnt as bad as I thought it was gonna be.
My son even jumped right in there and helped. Well atleast he thought he was helping with that Snap On water gun.
Then came the primer, and I have to agree with every blogger out there that recommends Killz, it was so easy to work with.
Then came the white paint.... EEEEKKK!!! I know I know it was such a beautiful piece and the wood was gorgeous, but it just wouldnt go in my bedroom with my dark brown walls. Dont worry its just paint, it comes off!
Now that its in my room and Im using it, I think I will repaint the drawer pulls a brushed nickel, unless anyone of you have a better idea???
Im so happy to FINALLY have this piece in my room. I should have posted pix of the before, I had piles of stuff just leaning against the wall, ugh so much nicer now. What do you think?
