I wish I had taken a before picture of this piece! This solid wood buffet has history and my father-in-law loved it. He purchased it from an antique shop.
I admit I was not completely thrilled when my husband announced we were inheriting this old buffet from his father. But after a few changes and upgrades, including the removal of the upper glass cabinet and some decorative metal plates. Sanding and some ebony stain, it is now sits in my dining room and is a very special piece in our house!
I hope he is not entirely devistated that I gave it a bit of an update.... and like to think it's better than storing it out in our garage!
