I have been all over town searching for a buffet for my dining room. We realized we needed some extra storage to put my grandmother's china and little odds and ends away for safe keeping. I really wanted to find something I could refinish and make my own, instead of paying a ton of money for a new one. But everything I found was HUGE or over priced! Then I found this one at Target for $170, with free shipping and an additional 15% off !
Cute, huh. I really thought this was it. It was a little smaller than I wanted, but I thought I could make it work. Clint wasn't totally convinced this was it. On Saturday, I went to 3 antique stores and 1 thrift store with my mom and came home empty handed. Then Sunday, I fell in love.
Clint and I went to a couple antique stores and didn't find anything. I remembered one other store I wanted to try on the way home.
The best part, it was $48!
It needs a little work on the very top and I am not very crazy about the finish. I would also like to change out the handles and knobs. So, spring and summer, I may be sanding and staining.
I've seen a few of my blog friends with some great finds lately! Anyone else been having luck with great finds?
