Makeover Monday

Now I have been looking for something I could use as a buffet table in my dinning room. I needed something functional that I could actually put food on to get people out of my kitchen and into another room in the house. Why is it that when you have a party everyone stays wrapped around the kitchen counter. So my sneaky little plan was if I had a buffet table that was in the other room maybe, just maybe it would get people OUT of my kitchen during a party. I have not had the opportunity to actually use this buffet for the purpose stated above. I will keep you posted if my sneaky plan will work.

I found this little beauty on Craigslist. Now for those that drool at all things white and shabby, trust me so do I. However, since almost all my furniture is painted black, I had no choice but to paint this one too.


Take a peek, before....


She really is already just perfect. But for my decor she had to go black.



What do you think?
