Before and After: A Buffet Gets Styled

Talk about changing the look of things! Craftster member Olga reports that this buffet, which is made from cheap materials, was purchased for $15. She writes, "I wanted to do something to help this buffet, and at the same time I needed to get more practice with different or new materials. For a long time I went back and forth on what to do with this monster, and finally, after months of staring at its ugliness I was inspired by an ad in Architectural Digest."

Here's what Olga started with.

To see how she changed the look of this "monster,"

.

Olga reinvigorated this buffet thanks to lots of careful painting and new legs, which she removed from a table and attached to the buffet. I love how the skinny legs modernize the piece, while the colors make it feel like a piece of Pop art. Nice work!

What a HUGE difference, looks great! I love the choice of colours and the addition of the longer legs, it definitely modernizes the piece. I agree with the others who posted; I don't know that I would have chosen the asymmetrical design for the top... I think I would have tried to mimic the same pattern that's on the doors and done it as one design across the whole top rather than one on each side.

Great work and I agree with plus_2_kid about the asymmetrical design on top - I personally would prefer the 2 sides to be the same. But I do love this piece and what you've done with it!

I wouldn't have thought to do the top that way. VERY neat painting! You couldn't drink a cup of coffee and do that!

right on - it's amazing how much adding the legs lightens the whole feel of the buffet.the non-symmetric design on top bugs me though.

WOW I LOVE THAT!!! It was so dated and heavy looking before. It took a very creative person to see this potential.
