How to: Turn a Buffet into a bathroom vanity

This post is actually going to be a combination tips & tutorials and a before & after because I managed to find a before picture of this pretty buffet, albeit, it’s terrible quality, it still gives you an idea of how far this piece came. So we unearthed this buffet and its sister dresser (you can check that one out here becoming the vanity for our main floor bathroom) during the clearing out of the farm house at the time of my Grandma’s death....more

Before and After: The old oak dresser from the screened in porch

This to me is my very best before and after when it comes to a save I made from the farm house. I would give anything to go back and get a good before picture of this beast.

Buffet ReDo

I don't know about you, but when I start a project like this I'm unstoppable! And since I was really super excited about getting this piece in my dining room, it just added fuel to the fire. In a matter of a few days ... I prepped, primed and painted this cute little buffet into my newest simple MESSterpiece. This little beauty is now sitting in my formal dining room ... and I am already thinking about what project to focus on next, but more on that later. ...more
