How to refinish a solid wood buffet


If you’re an avid upcycler, it’s easy to see the potential in everything you set your eyes on. When Leslie Jarrett spotted this cool antique piece of furniture online, suddenly, refinishing a buffet was next on her list of DIYs, and a very exciting prospect at that.

You may have guessed, Jarrett is an avid DIYer.

Based in Denver, CO, she has a furniture flipping business @wonderfullymadebyleslie (opens in new tab) and picked up this solid wood antique buffet for just $60 on Facebook Marketplace (opens in new tab) before setting out to refinish it, lightening the wood to give it an updated farmhouse look.
