A buffet or sideboard can de-clutter your kitchen by providing extra storage to house dishes, cutlery, placemats and other dining essentials. With a simple update, an old buffet can be turned into a piece that reflects the style in the rest of your home.

 

Check out how these Bunnings Workshop community members gave these buffets a fresh look and let us know if we can help with a similar project.
