Buffet styling complete!

Thanks to all of you that made the long wait to see the finished product. The buffet is in the perfect place and with help from MissLynley it is perfectly accessorized. Creamy dreamy white paint sets the mahogany top off amazingly.  Sherwin William Pure White is the paint color.
Remember the before pictures of this six foot long mahogany buffet?  You can see more of the before here.   A major Craig's list find for $200. It was so worth the hour drive to purchase her.
I normally would not paint over such gorgeous wood, but I had no family ties to this piece and that made it a little bit easier to paint. 
 This area is part of the "light and bright" project for our front two rooms.  My inspiration.. Less than Perfect Life of Bliss.

 This wall had an antique hall tree.  We will probably post the hall tree on Craigs List soon. The hall tree had just become a place to store the grands books and a stray jacket or scarf.
Now family get togethers will have a wonderful place for serving meals away from the always crowded kitchen.
 MissLynley helped me make the final decision on a lamp from Homegoods and I stumbled upon the mirror at Hobby Lobby.
 I was able to keep the original hardware, which I love.  And doesn't she have just the greatest legs?
  Who doesn't love a little extra storage too? It is amazing how a mirror will brighten and expand the feel of a room.
Up next there is only one area of the room left to brighten up a bit.  There is a red couch that needs to be sent to reupholster and maybe add a few cream colored side chairs too.  


  1. Turned out great! What a find. And mirrors are just like adding a window I think

  2. This looks fantastic! I love the striped wall and what you did to the furniture.
