My husband and I scored this buffet at the Rose Bowl flea market for only $40. It had a price tag of $50 on it and when I saw it I tried not to act totally stoked, but I was! As soon as we walked over the person selling it said he’d take $40 for it. Sold! I thought $50 was a killer deal, but $40?!? I can’t even try and haggle with that. It was in perfect condition too; made of solid hardwood with dove tail joints.

Of course I had to paint it. I can never leave anything as is, what’s the fun in that? I painted most of it with a soft white paint and added a few accents of deep umber. Then I heavily distressed it with 100 grit sandpaper. It still wasn’t roughed up enough, so I took a chain to it too. To finish it off I stained the whole piece with Dark Walnut Minwax.

I got the knobs at the new Hobby Lobby that just opened near my house. This store is so totally awesome! I had only read about it on other peoples blogs and dreamed about goingI took my grams with me and she loved it. She keeps talking about wanting to go back.
