Let's Talk Vintage #89: Dining Room Buffet Makeover & Latest Projects

Welcome to Let's Talk Vintage!
Thank you for stopping by... and if you are here then you must be like the rest of us and you love old stuff.
Feel free to link up your vintage finds, collections, family photos and history, vintage inspired projects, and more.
Today I'm sharing some of my Vintage and Co. shop updates.
And this is where I'll have to brag on my Hubby a little bit.

He refinished this vintage dining room table and buffet. Both pieces were from other sets.

This table was temporarily sitting in our living room and it was very, very dark with the deep mahogany stain. It was so dark I didn't even notice the petal features on the legs.

The buffet is very sturdy and well made. We were contemplating what color to paint it when I realized it would be great to create the same look and have it match the table. Hopefully, someone will by both. We really have great prices compared to new.

I'm currently working on a petite corner cupboard... it is so cute! Here are a couple of smaller projects I worked on:

This silverware chest was not in good shape when I found it.
Gave it a coat of Parisian Grey chalk paint, sanded, distressed, stenciled and waxed. Looking much better now!

And while I had the grey paint out and the brush was wet, this cute little tool caddy received some TLC as well.

Even though she is leaving my shop mate has been getting crafty. Love these cheese boxes!

I'll be back with more updates to the shop... big changes are coming and I'm already making plans. Today the hubby and I are going to purchase and pick up part of a check-out counter from a local scrapbooking store that has just closed. Stay tuned!

Now for this week's features:

Kickin' it off is Sarah of Sadie Seasongoods
with this star spangled colander centerpiece!
And she even embroidered it!!!!
and up next is Debbie of Debbie-Dabble.
Her fairy garden project is so sweet!
Fairy Tales are as old as time!
and Gina of Victorian Wannabe shared her
beautiful garden and porch décor.
She has an eye for antiques as well
as a green thumb!

Jill, your furniture redos look amazing, and I probably would've overlooked those wonderful petals too! Love the way you reworked the flatware chest too. I hope things are going well in your shop. Thanks for hosting. I thought Sarah's colander project was brilliant!
