My mom bought this complete piece of crap for 15 bucks from some lady. We had to drag it out of the lady's basement and drag it home, it's large and bulky, and heavy. It's made from very cheap materials, and is pretty much good-for-nothing. A million times my mom regretted lugging this thing to our already cluttered house.
I wanted to do something to help this buffet. For a long time I went back and forth on what to do with this monster, and finally, after months of staring at it's ugliness I was inspired by an ad in Architectural Digest (below).
The work on this thing took a long time, it was of course interrupted by life, but slowly, little by little (with lots of help from my dad) I finished. Basically it's all just paint, and then I added the legs, which were in a previous life table legs, which we chopped and attached.
