This thing is HUGE and I can not wait to paint it!!! It is going lighter but I don’t think I am going to do white! Maybe grey? Maybe white with a glaze? Distressing?

What do yall think?!

These buffets are selling for $200-$300 on my craigslist and I got this for….

  1. Awesome! What about black but leave the top just the stained wood?

    I love freebies too, Holly! :)

  2. Hey Suzanne! Everything in the house is white. I think black would be too much for this space! Because my living room is so small I feel like it would be a big black hole! haha this house is tiny thats why I have everything white to make it look bigger =)

  3. Oh my goodness! That is such a beautiful piece. I can't believe it was FREE! I'm jealous. Anyways, I can't wait to see it finished! I love white as well...but I think a very light grey (or greyish-blue) would be beautiful with some darker hardware.

  4. oh no, i'm sorry, but i can't deal with you. where are you getting all these pieces-pieces that are like exactly what i want for my bedroom!-for free? i can't wait to see what you do with this one either, tho i will be bitter about it. ha! just kidding!


  5. Holly, I can't believe you got that for FAH-REE! ;) Awesome! It's such a unique piece and has so much character! I can't wait to see what you do with it!
