So, I was doing my regular Craigslist crawl a while back and feeling in a total c-list rut. Things were slow, real slow. The St. Louis MCM furniture market just isn't what it used to be. Then I decided to change it up and visit a few of the less-frequented sections and try to ferret out any hidden gems.
I get to the "free" page and, as usual, it's all junk: broken treadmills, used mattresses, tube televisions...
I know that shape.
Yes, a free Broyhill Brasilia buffet and hutch, though you might have noticed something different about it.
Namely, the healthy dose of matte black paint that some amateur decided to give it. Ugh.
When will people learn? Expensive, well-designed wood furniture and paint should never mix.
With all of those curves and nooks, saving this one was going to be beyond me. Fortunately, it found a new home and capable hands which should be able to restore it to its former glory.
