Anyway. Here she is in all her glory when we brought her home.
And here's her super loverly shelf liner.
See those pennies in the bottom? Yeah, we scored 7 cents....lucky much?
So I sanded her down and painted her with this paint from Lowe's:
Mine came in a plastic jar, whatev.
Here she is after her facelift:
I ripped out the mushroom liner on the shelf and in the drawers. I just know I'll regret that one when orange and brown mushrooms come back into style again. I haven't found anything to replace it with yet though.
I put the old hardware back on when I was finished painting. My original plan was to buy some new stuff but the handles on the doors weren't going to come off without some major damage to the doors. So I had to tape around them before I painted. MAJOR pain in my butt. And yeah, I just noticed that I put that handle over there on the left on upside down. Probably never would have noticed it if I wouldn't have written this.
Now I need to redecorate the wall above the buffet. Everything is a little off center with the buffet. Uh yeah, just a little.
The shelf is already down, now I just need to decide what I want to put up once the rest is down.
She's not sitting around naked anymore either. It took FOREVER for the paint to dry. The paint was still a little tacky but my patience ran out and I found some things to dress her up with. I'll show you that in another post though.
Total cost $25 for buffet + $6 for paint - .07 cents that came with her = $30.93 Not bad.
Ohhh...want to see what we did with the hutch?
Yeah, that's where it has sat for the past two weeks. I think it's about time we figure out what to do with it.
I'm linking up to The Shabby Nest's Frugal Friday.
