Buffet with a Secret Drawer

I found this gem of a buffet at a tiny little thrift shop up the street from my house. I found it like this:



Not hideous, but not great...especially the top. After assessing it at home, this gorgeous blue was paint color number 4. Preceeding the blue was a white, a yellow and a super fun green. I wanted this one to show it's age and paint history a little, so I got busy with the orbital sander.

I will say that this type of finish wouldn't work in my house, but I think with the new glass pulls and primitive look, someone will love it!











Could you die over this secret drawer? Love.



She'll be for sale at Carver Junk Company at their October sale this weekend!
