buffet love

Remember that piece of junk that I bought a couple of weeks ago during my lunch break? Well it wasn't really junk and I fell in love with it almost instantly. I put Jed to work on it and I have to admit that he did most ALL of the work on this project. 

He first wood puttied some major scratches and holes. Then gave the whole buffet a good sanding, especially the top. We decided to re-stain the top and then paint the body ivory. 

We originally had planned to resale it, but like most things I buy I decided to keep it. We sold our old entertainment center and now this one is sitting happily in my living room.
