Having seen my furniture for sale in The Plaid Rabbit in the Village of East Davenport, my client asked me to paint her buffet/bar cabinet.   When I went to pick up her bar/buffet cabinet, she was watching the French Open and we discovered a shared passion for tennis.  straight on

Her house is full of bright colors and vivid patterns, so she wanted this piece to not be too showy and choose a blue/gray color with white detailing.  As you can see from the photos, there are two different hardware options on this cabinet.  My client decided to go with the darker, more playful hardware on the left hand side.  Frankly, that side was hands down my favorite.

I love the functionality of this piece that you can use as a bar or a buffet when entertaining.  I have painted another piece just like this one a few years ago with diamond patterns.

One of my first clients had me paint her bar with a diamond pattern and I love how it turned out.

As you can see from the above photo, the top unhinges to provide a much larger space for any entertaining needs.  I would love to have one of these versatile pieces in my home.

I love to see the before and after photos ~ the furniture almost always looks like an entirely new piece of furniture.  Hopefully this bar/buffet will be well loved for many more years to come.
