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.

We bought this table at The Helping Hands Store and the top needed to be refinished it was in good shape just had a lot of scratches on it anyways when we turned it over someone had wrote on it ...FIRST MEAL APRIL 26 1943 CHICKEN DINNER 5:30 PM thought that was interesting. started thinking about that ...the spring of 1943 world war 2 was being fought and everything including wood was being rationed by the goverment and somebody was lucky enough to be able to buy new furniture and wanted to record their first meal on the bottom of that piece of furniture. Anyways we finished it and it looks great, the top was re stained with Minwax english chestnut and then it received 4 coats of Minwax satin finish polyurethane then the chairs and table legs all were painted with Glidden acrylic latex onyx black satin finish paint. Check out the 4 chairs that came with the table they are really nice and different.
