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.
