Grey Mirrored Buffet {guest post}

Another beautifully simple and sleek dresser redesign by Jen from Migonis Home.

What is your favorite part of a makeover? Is it picking the color? Is it brainstorming a totally new vision for the piece than anyone but you can see? Or is it the statement making knobs that you can't help yourself from putting on every piece? I couldn't tell you what my favorite part is... I love it all. Except maybe the part where I have to figure out how to lug the furniture into my house :)

This piece was so fun to transform. It was a side of the road find and we lived with it with a coat of Revere Pewter for a while and loved it.

As time went on I realized we needed more storage in that corner of the kitchen and I decided to give this piece a makeover before selling it. I did something I'd never done on a piece of furniture...take out the door insides and replace them with mirrors.

I painted the whole piece in in Country Chic Paint's Pebble Beach. It is a perfect gray with barely a hint of blue.

I think a safe choice for knobs and pulls if you are in doubt are either glass or acrylic. They seem to go with almost any style and add a bit of glamour to an otherwise neutral piece.

I love the way this piece came out and think its such a great change from the "before".

I'm Jen Migonis and I blog over at Migonis Home about renovating our small Cape (every single room is getting seriously revamped), decorating, food and family. The whole gamut. :)  And I love makeovers. Every time I see a good one it makes me giddy. Especially one where someone took some risks or had a really great vision.

Rather than using mirrors, I think I would put a couple pieces of stained glass in the doors. :)
