A Fun Trip & A Beautiful Buffet

Home / General Info / A Fun Trip & A Beautiful Buffet

A few of my favorite people & I took a trip this past weekend to Ozark, Mo to pick up some furniture pieces for our latest journey: Warehouse 55.

It was SO fun!
Read below for the journey of the buffet!

 

 

Taylor & I saw so many of these buffets already painted for $350-$450 and that, quite frankly, was out of my price range.
At 5:18, I made the judgement call that I was tired, ready to eat, and done shopping.
(I mean we had started shopping at 9am, hit more than 10 stores)
Shannon said “Oh no, we came down here to shop and we aren’t stopping until at least 5:30.”

We drove down the road about 2 minutes and there was Finders Keepers;
I didn’t think it would be a “good” one because it was more high end antique furniture.

BUT; there it was. Taylor spotted it.
ANNNNND it was 40% off.

I don’t know about y’all, but this girl loves a good deal!

We loaded her up on the trailer..

It wasn’t all peaches from there though.

At one point, later that night, I turn around to make sure she is still on the trailer and she was gone.
I couldn’t see her.
I yelled “We lost the buffet”

Shannon pulled over.
Turns out, we didn’t lose her but she had fallen over on the trailer. :(
A door had broken off but she was okay otherwise.

Here she is, in all her door-less beauty!
We made it home!

The door made it home, too.
Oh, and so did the Dutchboy Chalk Paint in the color Refuge Green!

Taylor and I got to work immediately!

We painted it on a “live” Facebook video!
You can watch that here: LIVE BUFFET PAINTING

Because it was chalk paint, we did NOT sand!
(Am I the only one who HATES to sand?!)

We took off the old knobs and added glass knobs.
It adds such a classy / girly appearance and that was my goal!

Yes, I left the legs unpainted.
They were beautiful and I wanted to show them off! <3

Here is how it turned out.
What do you think?!
