    This oak buffet belonged to my grandmother and may have belonged to her mother, not sure. I know it is early 1900's at least. After she passed the buffet went to my brother and years later he gave it to me. I refinished it myself back to the original as much as possible. I had to have help putting the inside foundation back together since the old glue had finally given up. An 80 + year old man helped me with that part. It is in much better shape now than then. I polished the darkened brass teardrop hardware.

      great job debbie -- what did you use for the finish -- nice patina
    2. debbiepike54 debbiepike54, 8 years ago
      Epson...Thank you so much. I believe I used a satin polyurethane varnish. The stain and finish was the easy part after most of the old glue had fallen apart and I like to have never found someone that could put it back together...the inside drawer guides and the drawers themselves were in a heap on my front porch.

      However, that is the most durable hard oak I have in this house...solid and heavy.

      Thank you for the compliments on the buffet. Oh, that rooster is new from Hobby Lobby. Not an antique, something I love!

      Some of the glassware on the buffet is antique however.

      Thanks Eisenbach, it very well may not be mission oak. I wish I could find out as it has been in our family at least a century. I think I should replace the mirror.
