Say hello just 1/4 of another vintage 1930's dining set I am doing for another great customer! This next set has this mini-buffet, a full size buffet, a large table and all the chairs to match. I honestly can't complain about working on these vintage pieces, they are fabulous with their leggy legs and great detail. 

Ms. L is in the middle of a marvelous kitchen makeover/room addition at her house in God's country. Her plan was to get a new dining set to compliment the interior face-lift her house was receiving. She had already ordered her cream colored kitchen cabinets and thought, wouldn't it be grand to have something that matched it all? Insert me here. So she found the perfect dining set, I picked it up for her, we pow-wowed for a min and then the adventure began. Ms. L is quite fond of the natural top look. After finishing this pretty little lady up with paint, I left the top original and wiped her down well with Murphy's Oil Soap to get the grungy stuff off. Then I gave her a good waxing on and off with a layer of  Johnson's Paste Wax. I delivered her just in time for Ms. L's daughters baby shower the next day. She used it as a centerpiece for her decor and it was a big hit with the ladies! Yes!!!
*fist pump*
