After months of stalking craigslist and hoping to find a buffet to store stuff in our dining room, I finally found one!! It was the right size, style and price (I can't believe what people are asking for their crappy furniture lately! Has anyone else noticed this?), so I snapped it up. And ran to the outer burbs to pick it up.
Big enough to hold our bar, fancy glasses, linens and serving trays; it is actually a bit too big for the space. We will have to pull out the table if we want to fit 6 people around it. But that happens maybe 3 times a year. And really - that is the price of townhouse living. But it has freed up so much space in our kitchen, that I don't even care! I love it.
And - this is a big part of my simple goal #4! We are well on the way to having a beautifully decorated main level before the end of the year! Yay!
