Mrs.FW has a sideboard(buffet) that was for her mom. I have no idea how old it is, but it was in her mom's house when I met her in '71; and it was very old back then.
Since her mom passed away, we've had it in storage and are just now getting around to refinishing it. When completed, it will be use in the dining room as a coffee bar.
It had a beveled mirror in the upper framework, but I removed it, as the backing was coming loose. Plans are to inset a section of rusted corrugated roofing instead.
This morning, I sanded the top with a belt sander and removed the lower drawer and framework. The two upper drawers will be reinstalled and I'll add two shelves below. Mrs.FW plans to paint it with a light gray chalking paint finish and rework the top with a dark walnut stain.
More to come as this project progresses.
BTW, these pics were taken this morning. Check out the green grass and the blooming shrubbery.
