Shabby chic blue buffet

There was this piece at Goodwill that I debated over for a week. It was just so darn ugly. Each time I went in, it was still there, so I am thinking everyone else thought it was just as ugly as I thought it was. Finally it went to half off and I decided to suck it up and take a chance. I guess I couldn't go to wrong for $12. Worse case, I could use it for firewood...


I pulled out my favorite color....blue! Painted the piece up and thinking this might be the best $12 I have ever spent!

  2. This looks like it could be used as a change table too, with the raised sides on the top. It's beautiful!

  16. The ugly thing looks great in blue. Best 12 dollars you probably ever spent. In terms of value at least.
