Summer project one- done!

I bought this buffet at a garage sale a few weeks back for 15 bucks. I think it had spent the better part of the last decade in a barn. The drawers barely went in and the wood was dry and very rough. It was a project piece.

Here it is now....


The drawers all go in and work! I decided to use the hardware that it came with for the time being. I am moving it into my studio this week.

Good for you! Tjat is a quite handsome piece. It looks good and will be very functional for you in the studio (and add a nice touch of class, too.)

Oh, very nice! It doesn't even look like the same piece.

thanks- I thought that it would be harder to do- but it was actually a lot of fun. It's not a fine museum piece, but it's sturdy and useful and that counts for a lot.
