I've been looking for a very long time for the perfect buffet for my dining room.
I'm somewhat (OK, a bit more than somewhat) picky.
Size mattered. I wanted something long, but not too wide. Not leggy. I didn't want to wipe out my life savings but I was willing to pay for the right piece. It had to fit the style of my grandparents walnut table that I'd had refinished but not be too matchy- matchy.
I'm also patient. I wasn't going to buy something just to get by, I'd rather have a bare wall than something I didn't really like.
I've looked at furniture stores, antique stores, garage sales, ebay, etc... I've also been checking my local Craigslist. I hit the jackpot this week. I found the perfect buffet for my dining room and it was less than I thought I'd spend.
I'm so excited about redoing my dining room now. I moved the buffet in and it was perfect.
I'll post some before and after pictures of my dining room when I get it done. For now, here's a peek at my Craigslist find.
