We were away last week on vacation and I had time to think about my furniture. My dilemma has been, do I paint white my buffet and china cabinet? Both pieces are beautiful, both not necessarily 'me'.
The china cabinet came my way a few years ago when my parents bought a new one. My mom purchased it at a garage sale for less than $100 waaaay back when. Important to note: I have a matching dining room table, currently in storage (since I don't have a dining room.)
The story of the buffet is similar. I love the piece, but I can certainly imagine it painted white, with some beautiful new knobs/pulls (glass?). I saw a buffet so much like it that had been painted at an antiques shop a few years ago and that image continues to stick in my mind.
I'm about ready to jump in and do the china cabinet. Even if it is reunited with the table some day, I don't think I'd mind it if the pieces don't 'match'. The buffet scares me a little bit. It's a beautiful piece, and I don't want to ruin it. But with my love of white and all....hmmmm! Does anyone have some advice to share about this...any chance you encountered a similar project or situation? What did you do? What would you do?
