Phase 2 Dining Room Furniture

After a week of priming, painting, painting, oh and perhaps painting another coat or two, spray painting the hardware that could be salvaged and getting new, this is what we ended up with.  I used Chris from Just A Girl's advice on painting furniture, which can be found here.  In case you don't remember, click here for the Before, and now the After.

We took off the bar top, took out the wine rack from the center cubby and added two baskets.  My Gramma (who gave us the bar/buffet and dining room table) thought we bought a new piece of furniture. 


I'm so pleased with our $20 Craigslist re-do!
Still to do, decor, wall art, rug, find dining room chairs - am happy with our work in progress dining room though.
I'm linking to these parties.

I love it! You know you did a great job when the person who gave it to you doesn't even recognize it, lol.

Oh, this is so cute! I am just getting ready to do this TOMORROW to a buffet I'm moving into my kitchen as an extra surface (I even bought a remnant of marble to top it). It looks great and I love the link you gave too....I already knew everything on how to paint it, but it's just nice to know I am going about it right! Stopping by from Remodelaholic!
