For me?


Of course, I was dying to start painting on this buffet and forgot to take the before here it is right before I started painting.  This piece was musty, dusty and full of spider webs... so a good washing was needed.  Plus a little Gorilla Glue to repair the vaneer and we were set.  

Almost done...heavy distressing was needed to achieve the look I was after.  I needed a little inspiration for that center piece...but couldn't find any.  So, Hobby Lobby to the rescue!  I found a baroque stencil to add a special touch to the center.  

For me?  Not sure.  

It doesn't fit quite right where I had envisioned it and in my mind I have rearranged my entire house to find the perfect spot for it.  Hmmm...I think this would be a perfect "beverage" station for parties...but it kind of blocks the hallway.  Is that bad?  

I love this piece and as I take a second look...I think it might stay.
