A neighbour was throwing this buffet out, so I got it for free. The drawers looked like a sad face, so I covered them with ply for a flush look.
I used an orbital sander and 80 grit paper to get the varnish off, and went back over it with 240 grit for a smoother finish. The awkward parts were the creases. I had to do this by hand. It didn’t take too long though.
I already had Porter’s Paints Yacht Race from other projects and just bought new handles to finish it off. All up it cost around $80.
