Updated $40 Mahogany Buffet

We purchased this buffet on Craigslist for $40.  It was close by and a steal so we were happy to get it.  Rob was told by the owner it was a mahogany piece from the 1920's. First he sanded down the buffet and then applied Posh Red by Valspar that he purchased from Lowe's. Rob painted 3 layers and did 3 layers of polyurethane on it for the finished look for supplies for paint and other items it was around $45.  He spent an additional $50 dollars on new hardware for the piece since some of the original pieces were broken and unusable. 




Total Cost of Project $135

Materials- Paint, Polyurethene, other supplies $45
Materials - Hardware $50
Buffet - $40
