White...or not...


I love these old mahogany buffets...can you see this in the kitchen as a work center...or in a bathroom as the sink cabinet. I usually don't pick these up anymore because of the weight factor, but it was in really good condition...after several minutes of balking, I caved, knowing how cute it would be painted black...and they sell really well up at Sisters'...soooo...

Whatta ya think, isn't it perfect in black, besides the lil' store in Palo just hasn't the space for such a large piece...but ya gotta do what ya gotta do...Sisters' or bust...

That piece is in really good shape. You must have been tearing out your hair the last ten minutes of your decision to pick that up or not! I hope you can enlist a few strong men and a small boy to pick up that beast... Have a great weekend...

It is perfect in black! How I wish we had that in our store. Everyone is looking for a cabinet to sit the flat screen on and this is it baby!
We have a 5 foot buffet and it's getting lots of interest this week. Hope it sells. How's everything going at White?

And it's not about the house size, it's the pocketbook! In response to selling beloved old pieces...

Lovely, solid piece of furniture! I'd go for black mainly because that top bit would definitely service as a place for TV, sound system and the like! And then there's the storage underneath!

Great find!

I always enjoy seeing your buys..wonderful stuff. I would have bought that chest too..even if I broke my back moving it..worth the pain.
