As you may have read from my recent post last week, we decided to part ways with our Marina buffet because we had stumbled upon a new piece that would work perfectly in our space. The marina dresser sold pretty quick and it found a good forever home, so I'm happy.
Here is a before photo:
It's solid genuine mahogany and in perfect shape. My husband was instantly sold on this piece. He pretty much was willing to do whatever it took to make this ours. He literally sanded the top down for hours, yes hours, by hand. Gotta' love a man on a mission!
Here's a progress photo...
We then stained (minwax brand stain- red mahogany) & waxed the top and then painted (annie sloan's old white), distressed & waxed the body. I love the original hardware, so we left it untouched.
And here is our new buffet ...
Nice teamwork, honey! :) You were right, I love it!
Oh, and it came with a beautiful matching mirror that we aren't using- genuine mahogany. I'll post it in the coming soon section of our website if anyone is interested.
