Goodwill dresser turned dining room buffet


I'm not sure where the room makeover started?  Maybe with the new art I picked up at Goodwill, maybe with the new dining room chairs, or was it the curtains?  I just can't remember!  My mom did pick up this pretty amazeballs Drexel dresser at Goodwill for.... wait for it........  $40!  I kid you not.

BEFORE

It was in amazing shape on the inside but the the top had some major water damage and the front drawers had peeling veneer.  I'm not sure what might have happened to it but it was bad!  I didn't take on the painting of this one.  My sweet step father did and he is so much more of a perfectionist than I ever dreamed of being so this dresser turned buffet is absolutely perfect. 


 
It took lots of sanding and filling and more sanding on the top to get it smooth and perfect.  A few coats of paint later and wallah!


We reused the original hardware since it was not only gorgeous but also the gold ties into my light fixture beautifully.


It is now officially full of dishes, linens, candles, etc.  Thanks Pops!!

The full room reveal will be....uhhh...soon (commitment issues...)!
