Earlier this summer, I discovered this awesome buffet at a local thrift store.  Our friends Ryan & Andrea were kind to let us store it in their garage.  I was very excited about it’s potential as a flat screen TV stand–and so were they!

They decided to make it their own, requesting an antiqued white finish.  All the molding and detail, when distressed, looked great with that finish!  The original pulls added so much to the look of this piece.  Yet with one broken, they opted for knobs on the middle doors.

I love what paint, glaze and distressing can do to old pieces like this!  For more ideas on what can be done with dated furniture, visit our DIY Inspiration album.
