The Emergency Buffet!

For those of you who have read my blog from the beginning know that my husband and I are separated and we are working very hard to restore our relationship. We are still separated though...but I am trying to spend more and more time at the farm...our home. Many of my things are still in storage and I gave my piano to my Father. I had a large empty wall and a big need for more counter space - especially for Thanksgiving if it was to be held inside. Having little time to find something - I still think I did rather well. I found this 1940's buffet for the bargain price of $225.00. Picture #1 is a bit deceptive and does not show it's real condition though. I painted it black to match the French Country decor of the home and I am very pleased with it!

Taa Daa! The finished product!!

Awww, Julie, I was about to cry when you said you had to paint it, but it really turned out so pretty. Love it.

Psssst, need to lower that painting over it about 8 inches or so.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm really hoping you & your DH can work things out & get your relationship back on track. I know you can do it, with the help of the Lord.

Maybe more like 1 foot! Don't be mad at me, LOL.

It really is a beautiful piece. Good job!

I agree with Rhoda...I was thinking the same thing. A big mirror would look gorgeous though. That way you could put some tall candlesticks and the light would reflect. Just a thought.

Julie, that is just lovely!!! :)

My DH and I were divorced for a few years, and recently were remarried. It takes a lot of work, a little humility, and lots of humor and prayer, but it definitely can be done. I will keep you both in my prayers and close to my heart.

Happy Thanksgiving!
