I received a few emails after my post on intaglios about the buffet in our dining room. It was actually my parent’s. They bought it in 1969 after they got married. When my Dad decided to sell my parent’s home to downsize last fall, he asked me if I wanted their dining room set. At first, I declined because it seemed so formal and ornate… But upon further consideration, I decided to take it. I couldn’t stand the thought of getting rid of something that held so many family memories. I am so glad that I did. With a little updating, we were going to make it our own.
The buffet was actually a hutch. In an effort to update it, we took the top off. Here is the before (in my parent’s dining room):
and the after (in our dining room)….
I plan on painting it to match the walls and the hardware will ultimately be gold. Stay tuned!
