Turning a Buffet into a Wine Storage Cabinet – Tuesday’s Treasures

Hi Friends!

First let me say thank you to all of you who have sent me an email or called over the last week and are patiently waiting to hear back from me. We decided to go on a little camping trip in the Adirondacks. That means I tried to unplug as much as I could and it went really well. You small business owners know that means coming home to an extra week of work, but it was definitely worth it. That ALSO means that you get to see a bunch of pictures. You’re excited… I know you are!!

We had a wonderful time hanging out with this group of friends… friends that are like family!

We did fun things like rock climbing walls! We look so cool; try not to be jealous.

We also went to the Wild Center which is a new exhibit at a museum in the Adirondacks.  They have a life size eagles nest you can go in. See us waaaayyy up there?  :)

And a huge spider web trampoline!

I was so very thankful for the time with my little family. I feel like the kiddos are getting bigger so much faster these days.

As for the furniture…  I adore how we turned a run of the mill buffet into a one of a kind storage cabinet.

Here’s the buffet before:

We painted each of the pieces with black enamel paint. If you’d like to see how we paint furniture, check out our How to Paint Furniture post. John took the front door off. Behind the door is a shelf that goes all the way through the back so he had to cut into that to give us space for the X wine storage. He built the X and inserted it into the cabinet.

We lightly distressed the whole thing and gave it the best buttery finish ever!

Are you ready for the after?

  1. Amazing piece of furniture. Would you be able to explain how to do the X for the wine storage? Thank you so much.
