Drab to Fab Buffet Redo

2 Materials
I've had my grandma's buffet for 25 years, and have wanted to redo it off and on, but have hesitated. Finally, I gave myself the ok to make the old new again! I wanted to make it a multi-functional statement piece for a small living area and I have a thing for teal and copper together, so that's what I went with.
First, I had to re-glue some joints that had come lose and drawer bottoms that were sagging. Then I sanded, added embellishments, replaced and repositioned pulls, and painted then "stained" with black/brown acrylic paint. Finally, I added a copper rub. I'm very pleased with the outcome!
Suggested materials:
  • Spray paint- MAXX,black, brown, and copper acrylic paint   (Walmart)
  • Pulls, keyhole covers, and wooden embellishments   (Hobby Lobby)

    I have the same buffet you do from my husband's grandma. Yours turned out beautiful. I haven't decided if I want the natural wood look or paint. That's a project after I get my kitchen done. Beautiful piece of furniture.
