It was missing a front leg so the remaining one was removed. Luckily, the piece is sturdy enough that four legs suits it just fine.
The top of the buffet was in such horrible condition that the only thing they could do is break out the tools and remove all the damaged wood. They pulled the veneer off and Susan liked the boards underneath so she decided to leave them exposed and stain them.
After all of the woodworking was complete, Susan chose Old Town Paints in the colors Sterling for the body and Vintage White on the details.
Look! It's a furniture selfie! Remind me to put that pic on Twitter. We'll see if we can't beat out Ellen's Oscar pic for most retweets.
This gorgeous buffet was quickly sold and here it is pictured in it's new home...
I love that top. Great choice in staining it Susan! The colors she chose really bring out the details in it, too.
Shoppe La La is located in Cape Girardeau, Missouri and they are a proud distributor of Old Town Paints. You can meet Susan and check out more of her work on her Shoppe La La Facebook page. Let her know you saw her on Furniture Flippin'.
