My Curb-Side Buffet

Sharing is caring!

I’ve been desperately wanting a buffet, sideboard or hutch to place in our living/dining room.  Something to display some pretties on.   I’ve been searching garage sales and Craigslist…but I hadn’t found anything until…. one Saturday a few weeks back after a visit at my parents I found this… she was sitting curb-side with a “free” sign (my favorite)… the remains of a garage sale earlier.


Ok, it wasn’t covered with garage junk (BOY do I need to organize the garage!) ~ don’t you love how certain areas become dumping grounds!

Here’s a better look at it…IMG_1383

Don’t you just LOVE how the sides lift up!  I will definitely use those when family and friends are visiting.  You can see that I’m sanding this baby down. 

Here’s a closer look too…


She has lovely curves and lines, structurally in great shape, drawer works perfectly and she was FREE!!!

Any guess what color she’s going to be painted???

Stay tuned… if the weatherman is right & it starts to cool tomorrow I can finish painting her.  It was over 100 yesterday!


  1. I found your blog from Mustard Seed Creations…and I can't believe what a find you have! That's awesome! I loved the transformation too! What a deal—for FREE!!!


  2. I can't wait to see what you do with this! It's got such a great shape…good luck!

    Thanks for visiting my laundry room!

  3. What free? I have been looking for a french provincial dresser for my bedroom…Can't find one to save my life!

  4. That baby was FREE? WOW!!! You got lucky with this find…congrats! I can't wait to see how she looks after you are finished. Hope you have a great week.
