I have to admit I’m more accustomed to black or blue but I’m in love with this green and now I see why so many of you love these green tones. Check out my reel to see the before of this orange oak buffet. I’m so happy with the result and I’m loving the new door fronts and more modern base. This buffet has ample storage inside and would work great as a side table, console or coffee bar as well.

"Solid maple buffet by Young Republic. It was refreshed by sanding the top to bare wood. The maple is gorgeous and smooth as butter, so I decided to leave the raw wood.

"My client dropped off this chair to be refinished and told me an awesome story of how this chair came to her. Apparently there was a running joke in her family that her mom was not allowed to use the checkbook, and that was because of this chair. Around 60 years ago she purchased 2 of these chairs at $600 each. That’s a lot of money back then!! Heck that’s a lot of money today!
Her husband was a little upset when he found out the purchase price. Now that the chair was passed down, I’m...
