Buffet Before and After

I am in the process of redoing the Master Bedroom. We had been using my grandmother's buffet that my aunt had given me for a TV stand for a few years. Then, one day, I got a wild hair (so what else is new, I know my husband would say, lol) and asked him if he'd please paint it. He had no problem agreeing to to the endeavor as this is not his favorite kind of wood. I've been in a blue mood, well, more like teal, as of late and blessedly we had a can of that color on hand. He primed it, painted it, then sanded it and I love how it turned out! So much so, that we moved it into the kitchen nook to add more lightness and color there...

Isn't it amazing what a difference a can of paint can do?

I am linking up with Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday,  House in The Roses Show off Your Cottage Monday,
and Keeping It Simple Motivate Me Monday.

Also, today is the last day to enter my GIVEAWAY here!

  8. Myrna thank you so much for your sweet comments about my home tour. I had been feeling a bit foolish even entering as the other homes seemed farmhouse/country- younger and hip not at all like my ancient place!

    Your buffet turned out so pretty and I love love all the old pretty linens as a valance!!! I have drawers full off old lines and cannot pass them up when I see them!

    I have a buffet in the dining room that is in much need of a paint job. Might do something like this with a white hue.

    Oh did you sign up for my pretty enamel sign giveaway?

    bee blessed
