$24.49 Thrift Store Find

This Buffet was pretty dirty and crammed back behind other large pieces of box store brand newer cast always. When I spotted it out of the corner of my eye, it was piled high with second hand clothes, shoes and even a tennis racket and drill.. Such abuse! I dug it out and bought it immediately. The drawers are intact, and not stains or bad smell. Just dirt and the cabinet doors were broken beyond repair.
I removed the pulls and discovered they are solid brass with a small piece tortes shell bakelite on the left side of each pull... Did I say SCORE already.
I decided to go with a deep rich red. SW7375 Sun Dried Tomato to bring out the brass pulls. I also used an antiquing wax, I think this piece is grand in its own rights, I wanted to give it a new "regal" life.
I finished the top with a dark walnut stain and 3 coats of water based clear. Georgous. This one truly spoke to me.
