This thing definitely has its bumps and scrapes but It needed a good home and I will use it whenever I move out. If I ever find a better one for a great price, I already told my girlfriend that I will be more than willing to part with this one to get the better one. I found one similar to it over on apartment therapy that was $100 and in much better condition so I think I got a good deal on it. You can see that one here. Here it is stuffed into my car. Its a tad bit longer than the Love Sofa I bought last Saturday but It still fit in pretty easily after I unscrewed the legs.
The Buffet isn't too heavy which is probably because it isn't exactly the highest quality. I vacuumed all of the dust out of it but It does smell like smoke which I will have to take care of later. It's not too hard to get rid of a smoky smell. I hate smoke smell so the quicker I get rid of it the better. It looks pretty good from a distance but when u get closer to it you can see its flaws.
You can see the chips and scratches on the bottom corner and the top has some stains and scratches on it but I think I can make those disappear with a little elbow grease. We will see how that pans out.
Here you can see the most notable damage. All of the legs have a fair bit of damage to them but this one is the worst. I think I can sand them down and re-stain them to bring back its former glory. The other terrible part on it is that it is missing quite a large chunk of veneer on the front right of the buffet. I may just replace that whole strip. That shouldn't be too hard but we will see. This is why I think it might be better to just paint it. If I can fix it for cheap I'll just do that though.
The drawers are pretty nice but there are a few nicks on them. I think I can cover them up with a bit of stain though and the back is just some cheap board that I could drill through to put wires for a TV in. the possibilities are endless! I can't wait until I can modify this thing to my likings! It will look pretty cool as a TV stand so I'm pretty sure that will be its future use unless I find a better one like that Kroehler Buffet.
