I found a great pine buffet and hutch and some vintage ironstone this week.
We sold our solid oak buffet and hutch early this Fall and I have been searching for a smaller pine one (but it had to be affordable for us.) We picked this one up this morning from someone local. Although it is a simpler more rustic piece, I really like that it has open shelving and real tongue and groove backing. It isn't as deep so there is more room to sit at the table too.
I loved the oak buffet and hutch with all the drawers and paned doors. It was so well made, but it was just a bit too big for the small eat in area of our kitchen. My guys were also having a hard time with my desire to paint and distress it. Since they don't usually have strong opinions on decor stuff I thought it best to flip it (for a nice profit.) The new one just might see a new paint treatment in the New Year.
Now I need to decorate the shelves. I will probably use my latest ironstone finds, this pair of vintage Wade lidded ironstone serving bowls I found at the thrift store this week. A score for $6 each!
I love the creamy colour and the pretty scallops on the edge.
The inside of the lids are smooth and finished too.
