This Colonial Revival Dining Set and Buffet sat in my workshop for over a year until inspiration and motivation struck. Who am I kidding, it sat for so long because the table top was buried behind so many other pieces. I had to finish what was in front of it before I could get to the table.
My staging area is not large enough for the table and buffet, so I had to photograph them separately.

This table has one of the built in table leafs, so it extends out to fit the 6 chairs.
The fabric is Plazzo by P. Kaufman from fabric.com. The fabric was the inspiration for the entire piece. I picked the colors of the paint after I received this beautiful fabric in the mail. I am always hesitant to order fabric online without seeing and feeling, but now I have confidence ordering through fabric.com. They sell quality brands and have great service.
The top of the buffet was in bad shape, so I had to sand down and remove all the flaking varnish and scratches.
I used all the same products on the buffet as I did on the matching dining table and chairs.
I used the original hardware and gave it a facelift as well. My storage area is cleaned out and I need to go find some more discarded furniture. I can’t wait to find another perfect piece to use more of this fabric.
