I met Karen when I was going to buy a piece from her and it ended up working out that she had me refinish her piece instead! She was in the process of lightening up her dining room and I was more than happy to help. Here is the before of the buffet (minus the hutch part).
Karen knew she wanted white, but did not want it heavily distressed and rubbed.
I think we came out with a piece that she was happy with.
Karen, did you ever get the mirror for the wall on top to catch the reflection of the lake?
