Furniture Friday

Each Friday, the Miss Mustard Seed blog features furniture makeovers, so I thought I'd enter one of my pieces. I wish I had a "before" photo of this old dining room buffet. We bought it at an auction with the specific purpose of converting it into our bathroom vanity. It was the perfect size, a great shape, and a steal of a price, so it came home with us.

I sanded, primed, painted, and glazed the dark wood to make it a much lighter piece for our bathroom. Husband cut out the holes for the sinks and plumbing, closed off the top drawer (since that's where the sinks and pipes are), and I added crackle-glazed knobs. It's the perfect fit for our new space!

Wow! What a hell of a job but the outcome is absolutely gorgeous.

This is "husband" - I know that when we move she will want to take it with her.

You both did a great job, I am so glad you are sharing these pics, I've always been curious of what you do with the vintage furniture you buy =D

I adore this! Now I have to go scour resale shops and find something to do this in our master bath

Erica, that is so clever. I have a buffet in my kitchen that is painted black and is similar to that one, but I never would have thought it should go in the bathroom. It just works perfect. Love it!
