Her matching table and chairs sold and one-by-one so did the furniture around her until she was the only one left in the room. Bound and determined that all she needed was to find the right buyer, I patiently waited.
1940's Art Deco Waterfall Buffet Sideboard REmakeover
This is how she originally looked before we became friends...
This how she looked after her first makeover...
I think her namesake painted interior exposed to the world might have been a little too risque and scared people away. So I covered her back up again.
What was supposed to be a quick afternoon tweak ended up with some snags? I'd like to know how a door that hung on a piece for several decades and was removed no longer fits when it's put back on?
Putting the middle door back on gave her a much cleaner look.
...with the key to her heart, I bid her farewell.
Don't you agree, painting the cast iron hardware white looks so much better?
Where she was once bare...
...she is now covered.
She has so many great features like her fabric lined drawers...
...and her painted graphic on the top with Parisian flair.
...and her namesake painted Old Violet interior with loads of storage.
So now it's round two of finding her a new home.
Here's where I could use your help. You, my lovely readers, have given me some great feedback and advice on other projects and so if you don't mind, I'd like to pick your brain again.
Which do you like better, the first makeover?
...or the REmakeover?
I am thrilled to report that Old Violet sold within days of listing her back for sale. Even more exciting is that she moved back to the same town her original family resided in when they owned her. Talk about coming full circle!
