Weekend project

We worked on a old antique reproduction buffet that I purchased a few weeks ago from a local charity sale. The proceeds went to local abandoned farm animals.

The Buffet is not in great condition, some termites did some damage a while back and the trim was falling off in a few places.
I conditioned the piece and gave it a mild cleaning. Rory glued, clamped, and nailed on all the loose trim pieces. It's starting to look pretty good. It came with a ugly broken slab marble top that we might be able to use for something else smaller, not sure yet. But we need to replace it with a new counter top of some kind. We were thinking Rory could make a distressed concrete one, or we might hit up the granite places near by for a good deal on piece laying around. We just can't decide on the color!
