Thrifted Dresser Turned Buffet Makeover

I found this fabulous dresser at my local Habitat for Humanity ReStore. I love buying pieces second hand and giving them a new life. This piece was no different. With a new coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and wax, it's even better than new. I kept the hardware as is so I can enjoy the lovely aged brass patina. This dresser turned buffet is the perfect addition to my dining room!

    How can this be a buffet when there’s nowhere to stand anything?

    So pretty! I have never heard of restores.

    @Myra @ since my last comment, I have found a buffet that is soooo similar to yours. It's freaky. I'm in the process of working on it now. It's painted a new black, now I just need to give it some jazz!
