Buffet Table Makeover, Part 2

Serena & Lily Dupe

Last week I showed you this buffet table I picked up from Facebook Marketplace. Today I am going to show you the finished product and the steps I took to achieve it’s look.

What I ended up doing…

I started by painting it all white. White matches my decor much better. I thought maybe that was all I needed to do to it. Paint it white and…..done. But, once I got it in the house I decided to go in another direction.

I have always loved the Serena & Lily coastal look. Unfortunately I do not have the budget for it. Sooooo, I decided to try to Serena & Lily-ize it. I have done this to several other pieces too. Like this one and this one too.

First, I took a trip to Hobby Lobby in search of some fabric or caning that had this sort of look.

I settled on this burlap material. At $3.99 a yard I figured even if I didn’t end up liking it, it’d be ok.

I also picked up a poster board while at Hobby Lobby. Once I got home I took the doors off of the buffet, measured the inside of the door, cut a piece of poster board down to size, cut the fabric down to size and glued it onto the poster board. Then I glued the poster board to the door. That way If I ever get sick of this I can just take it off. After all, the doors do have a pretty design.

Assembling the door on the buffet

The last thing I purchased while at Hobby Lobby were these fun knobs. They are very pretty, but I am not sure I am loving them on this piece. What do you all think?


Here is the final look. Yes, I know the cat food and the water dispenser are eye sores, but this is really the only spot to keep them.

What do you think?

I received some nice feedback on the above knobs. Everyone seemed to agree that although they were pretty, they just weren’t right for this piece. I ended up finding these on Amazon and think they are perfect.

    You did a great job! I love the new look and I really like the idea of using a poster board on the doors. Although I really like the knobs, I’m not liking them on this piece. IMO, the color is too green for the overall look.

      Thank you so much for the feedback. I think I agree with you. I thought maybe they would grow on me if I left them on, but every time I pass it in the kitchen, I’m like….hmmmmmm. I’m just not loving them.

    Your cabinet looks amazing! I love the color. But I will have to agree with Tina, the knobs are really cool, but, not on this piece.

      Thank you so much for the feedback. I’m so glad you like my piece. I ended up ordering some new knobs from Amazon. I also found different ones at Hobby Lobby. Hopefully one of them works. Thanks so much!!!
