I rescued this old buffet from my grandmother’s barn. It was hidden back in a far corner under boxes and boxes of old treasures. Once home I added a fresh coat of white paint. When we started it was the same color as the top, but I didn’t take a before photo.
We lightly sanded down the top a couple times. I wasn’t too worried about imperfections because I wanted a somewhat rustic, old feel to the piece. Having the top a little worn was okay.
Once sanded we added a couple coats of Minwax Red Mahogany stain.
I kept the handles as they were. I thought they tied in nicely with the top.
The transformed buffet worked perfect for our bar area at our wedding reception!
I drive by these cute signs every day on my way to work. I finally had a day where I could take a moment to stop to see what they were all about.
I was so happy with what I had found. Flower Bucket Farm is a quaint little roadside stand next to a field full of flowers for you to pick. Everything is based on an honor system where the prices are listed per stem & flower type and you pay by leaving payment in a wooden box.
Some of the flowers were affected by the previous night’s frost, but we were still able to gather a few sunflower and zinnia stems.
We picked out a little pumpkin for our lil guy to take home.
I haven’t had a whole lot of time to do much Fall decorating, but the flowers gave my hutch a nice little touch of Fall! We will be making more stops at the Flower Bucket Farm!
