Happy Monday blog fam! I don't know about you, but this weekend flew by so fast. If you follow my Instagram stories then you would have seen that Todd and I worked all weekend on refinishing a buffet/console for our living room.
We decided to refinish a piece of furniture for multiple reasons. The first reason is that since we have vaulted ceilings I couldn't find a console that was tall enough with our tv to hold the space. The second reason is that I couldn't find anything in the color scheme that matched the living room color palette. The final reason is we couldn't find anything within our budget.
Over the past two weeks Todd and I have been scouring the Facebook marketplace and Craigslist for the perfect console. Last week I even ventured to multiple Goodwills and Salvation Armies within an hour radius, and unfortunately they were all a bust. Back in Arizona the thrift stores were so amazing, and always had a variety of home furnishings. Pennsylvania thrift stores on the other hand carry a vast amount of clothes, and have very little home furnishings. Even though the thrift stores were a no-go I found a console on the FB market place for only $30!
Todd picked it up on his way home on Friday, and immediately we got to work! I asked on my stories whether you wanted me to do a DYI post on the process of refurnishing this console, and I was so excited when the majority said yes! I can't wait to share with you guys the before and after!
