Anyone want to join me for dinner and drinks?
I'm loving this server! And let me tell you we had a love hate relationship, it gave me a run for my money but in the end it turned into a show stopping conversation piece. I love the mix of it's antique feel with all the detailing mixed with the bold black paint and sleek cup handles.
This piece was in desperate need of some attention. It was screaming at me from across my best friends basement...it was begging for me to take it home and clean it up.
And that I did.
I saw it's potential from the moment I laid eyes on it but as you can see it was in rough shape. You could barely even see it's curvy claw foot legs under all the dust.
And I think the dogs enjoyed snacking on it every now and again. But nothing that a
lot little wood filler couldn't fix.
All set for a dinner party, it could be used as a server/buffet. It also could be a great hallway/entry piece to throw your keys on when coming in the door. It's a cedar lined chest so you can store all your family heirlooms and dishes you only use a few times a year in there too.
My husband tried to tell me it could be a giant humidor for all his cigars (nice try buddy).
I love the hardware it has a little bit of a roughness to it with it's texture but still maintains a clean updated feel.
Look at those legs now! So much character!
Now I just need to get a dining room table and we can have ourselves a party.
