I was FINALLY able to snag an antique Duncan Phyfe buffet on Craigslist after MONTHS of searching. It is identical to this, and I plan to refinish it almost exactly the same way. (Except stain the top instead of paint). I guess good things really do come to those who wait!!

    I have this same buffet that belonged to my Grandma. I've been wanting to paint it black and leave the top stained. Have you painted your buffet and do you like it?

    Sorry, I just reprinted this Duncan Phyfe buffet w/o changing the caption. Good luck!
