Michelle and I don't normally buy antiques and ruin them buy refinishing them, but this piece was begging us to buy it and take it home so we did. I don't really know what this piece is? a buffet, a small home bar, a side table? I do know it was made in London by HERON. We sanded and repainted it with Glidden acrylic latex onyx black paint and changed the knobs and the top received 4 coats of Minwax satin finish polyurethane. We have it for sale on Craigs list for $375.00 it is a interesting piece that will have people taking a second look at. Do you like this? should we have left it alone? feedback please.
