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!
