Glamorous cherry buffet

This awesome buffet has gone to live with my friend Jennifer and her family.  Jen's gorgeous dining room has beautiful hardwoods, chair molding, and the sensationally striking navy blue and white paint combination.  This buffet was the perfect compliment to the furniture she had but needed a little love to spiff her back up.  You can tell from the before pictures, she had great bones but she'd been loved and I think a little neglected.

We used steel wool, sandpaper, denatured alcohol, nail polish remover, polish, stain, wax, wood glue, and a few other tools of the trade to really get her back to shining!  Oh, and we had to replace those pulls on the doors too (they were AWFUL).  She is now gloriously glamorous and fits perfectly in Jen's home!  

This delivery made a gloomy rainy day bright and cheerful!

Thanks again Jen (and Vic too)!
