Buffet: Battered to beautiful!

Remember this baby? Back in September I commence a little makeover on the first piece of furniture that His Lordship & I ever bought together (more than 20 years ago).

Lovely in her day, she became a little dated. Her orange based timber stain was like a middleaged woman who was still trying to wear the same makeup from her teenage years ( you all know what I mean right? ) and her gold/brass drawer pulls had seen better days.

She had been hidden away-kept from public view. Yes, I HAD become ashamed of her! Now-as I have grown to appreciate my own middle age I decided that I should bring her firmly into THIS century.

This is her now:

A coat or two of homemade chalk paint,a little wax, new drawer pulls and she's ready to strut her stuff!
We have had a wall pulled down to enlarge our dining area ( pictures of that process in another post) and she is now the star of the room!

How about you? Have you given any furniture a makeover and a new lease of life?
Oh-and apparently this is the 100th post on this blog!!!!!!!!
