|by the way, don't fret, it actually does have all the hardware. I had just gotten so excited that |
I had already removed one of the cabinet pulls and drawer handles before I shot the before pictures!
A vintage Thomasville Buffet. I HAD to have it. I stood there mouth open just looking at it. Seriously. Three different people stopped to ask me if I was ok! But even though it was love at first sight, I'm the kind of girl who needs to check all her options. But before I left, I asked about it, asked if they could come down in price. The owner agreed to a 10% discount as it had only come into the shop about two weeks earlier. And then I asked if she could hold it. This was something I'd not asked before in a thrift/consignment shop. She said that she'd hold it for 24 hours and give me the first right of refusal. Remember, it never hurts to ask! But of course my next few thrift stops didn't turn up anything nearly so fabulous. So I bought it! It's going to be amaaahzing painted green in my new craft/room office, don't you agree?
