It's a Different One, I Swear!
We sold the Beaut from before today, so I ended up putting this new buffet in the same position. This is the first one that came with casters, not that they worked but it was different. I really love adding the old casters to these chunks to make them a little more versatile but I am running out of matching sizes. I must have twenty that are off by just a smidgen. Oh well, great birdhouse material!
This one was an easy transformation. That is so nice every once in awhile, I get thrown a bone! My latest little buffet had very few issues. The veneer was intact although very scratched and the top coat was flaking terribly. There was some fillets missing on the front of one of the doors so I easily popped those off for another project. Otherwise , I just needed to find some fitting knobs for the doors from my vast collection and we were good to go.
Sanding took care of the flaking bits which was a necessary step anyway. Four coats later from my favorite Rust-Oleum paint, Heirloom White, covered most of it while some spots needed a little more encouragement from a fifth coat. Lightly sanding a few edges and finishing those raw edges with a paste wax completed the new look for this buffet. www.rustybucketantiques.com
