70s Buffet Makeover

I see these buffets at my local thrift store, yard sales and even on the street on big furniture pick-up days!  They're super clunky BUT they have a ton of room in them and they're super fun to makeover.  Painted in bright colors they're the perfect outdoor storage, too.  I'm using mine for all of my DecoArt paints and filming equipment since I film most of my videos on the back patio.   Also, since I live in LA and I have a covered patio, I don't have to worry about snow or too much rain so this piece will weather nicely.  Think twice before saying no to ugly furniture and don't forget to 
Make Your Mark!
 Make your patio into another room!
Before the paint and fabric makeover!
I love using Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paints! 
 Filled with my DecoArt Paints!

Watch how I did it here!

  1. Love it Mark! it turned out so bold!Never, never underestimate a dated old furniture! Have a great week!

  2. What an inspiration! I see these clunky pieces too and always think....they don't have "good bones". You have proved me wrong! This is truly a sows ear made into a silk purse. Bravo!
