I had decided I wanted to give the stained look on the top and painted look on the bottom of the buffet a try. So I sanded the top down to bare wood and then just gave a rough sand to the rest of it. I hate sanding! But I soon discovered I hate staining even more then sanding! My husband was then nice enough to buy me a paint sprayer to use with his air compressor to paint the rest of the buffet. Actually after the staining the buffet sat in the garage for a long time and while I was gone to visit my sister in Arizona, my husband very nicely painted the rest for me :) When I got back he taught me to use the sprayer and I painted the back of the buffet doors and the drawers which are located behind the middle two doors. I also spray painted all of the old hardware oil rubbed bronze. The top is stained Red Mahogany and the bottom is painted Queen Anne's Lace White from Lowe's, Anyway, here is what the buffet looks like now!
As you can see it now houses our TV and all the accessories that go with it. I love it and how it turned out! It hides all our junk and makes the living room looks so much bigger without the giant entertainment center taking up that whole wall!
