One Beautiful Buffet

 This buffet had been stored in a very damp basement for a number of years.  The drawers and doors were almost impossible to open.  The large bottom drawer fell apart when opened. The backboard was broken and was just nailed together.

And this buffet is big!

You can see the nails holding the scrolled detail in place.

The bottom drawer had fallen to pieces, sides missing, bottom warped and split.

And here she is today. She looks like she is wearing ear rings!  

I gently distressed the buffet to accent the scrolled front detailing. 

The buffet is 66 1/2 inches long, 21 1/2 inches wide and 41 inches tall.
