One of the fastest turn-arounds in my personal history of furniture makeovers.
At least for a piece this size.
A white buffet!
I saw it.
I bought it.
The next afternoon it was in my booth.
Now this buffet had some war stories.
The white arrow points out where something heavy and sharp hit the top edge and one of the drawers.
The black arrow points out where some substance caustic enough to remove the varnish spilled onto the foot.
Both areas were heavily sanded back into shape.
The buffet was well-made with nary a shiver or shake.
The inside was in great condition - not needing anything more than cleaning.
Flipped it over on the painting frame.
Sanded the outside parts.
Brought out my Valspar Bermuda Sand.
Just the drawer fronts.
Notice that the sun has gone away.
Above me was a large ominous cloud.
I scurried and I hurried and I painted two coats on the body and three coats on the top.
In record time.
Slapped some paint on the pulls.
The first drops of rain.
Let's move this thing to the back of the Blazer.
Luckily the back dock of the antique mall is covered!
I loved the way the white buffet looked in the small booth.
I took a few pics and left.
That was the last I saw of it.
The white buffet found a new home promptly!
Thirty hours from the time I bought the buffet to the time it sold!
