I found this buffet for my breakfast room at the Salvation Army store for under $140. About $50 later (and several days of refinishing/painting) we turned it into this beautiful piece of storage. The hardware is what attracted me to it, and it is still my favorite part. It is solid wood, has good sturdy drawers that slide, and dovetail joinery. For about $200 we have a beautiful, high-quality piece of custom furniture for storing kids’ arts and crafts and my extra dining/entertaining pieces. (Scroll down for colors).
