Any ideas, tips or suggestions for this dresser turned buffet
I just bought this huge dresser with mirror with intentions of using it in my dining room as a buffet. It is a Broyhill Premier Emphasis collection from 50's-60's, for anyone who is wondering, and I got it for a steal! My style is sort of modern, clean lines, but I love lots of different things and if I like, I go with it! My dining room walls are called deepest aqua and is sort of a deep turquoise. My table is antique walnut on top with black legs, and my chairs are dark brown leather. I also have dark brown crushed sort of satin curtains, not shiny. I'm leaning towards the rustic sort of look in here, with blues, oranges, greens. This look also compliments the rest of my house. I want to paint, refinish, redo this dresser to go in here, but I'm not sure what colors I want to go with. I was also thinking of taking out the drawers on both sides to just have shelving and turning the drawer fronts into a door, so it still looks the same on the outside. The center doors open to reveal more drawers which are bigger and would be great for placemats, table cloths, small platters, etc. I would love some ideas about this piece! Keep in mind this is NOT my dresser, but it is exactly like this one, just NOT in near as good a shape! I wish it was!
