Some new Jewelry for my "Ugly" Buffet
This little depression era buffet is one of my favorite pieces. When I found her and her little brother "China Cabinet" at the Goodwill 8 years ago they were ugly brown, sad, chipped and 50% off. Even so, I could tell they were sturdy and they reminded me of my Grandma. When my hubby and brother in law went to pick them up for me I think they were a little repulsed. When they moved them in for me they asked "are you sure you want these?" "Yes I want them. They are going to be super cute with a coat of paint." I replied.
Since they have been with me they have been white, red and black. They have been moved, bumped, sanded, chipped and pretty much abused. They are not fancy but they are strong. I love them.
I was at Hob Lob (again, I know, I know) yesterday and I found these great chunky ceramic knobs in a bunch of fabulous colors and shapes and I thought my beloved buffet would look so cute, maybe even a little fresh, dressed in these. So I bought three sets of different shapes in black and cream. They look great with the toile shades.
Aren't they sweet?
Doesn't she look proud?
