A Dixie Buffet

I was super pumped last week when I scored this Dixie buffet at Goodwill for $24.99.  It was in perfect condition!!  I decided "French Linen".  This is my FAVORITE color now!  A deeper, richer grey than "Paris Grey".  I am hooked.  I distressed and used both the clear and dark waxes.  I kept the original hardware as-is.  I taped off a stripe inside the cabinet on the hidden drawers.  The top was sanded and stained with Minwax "Dark Walnut".  I liked this one so much, I decided to keep it : )

  1. I looks great. It seems that I remember a furniture man telling me that Dixie Furniture later became Lexington. It's quality and you'll be glad you have it. It's made in the USA!
