Before & After: IKEA Cabinet Turned West Elm-Inspired Buffet

Before & After: IKEA Cabinet Turned West Elm-Inspired Buffet

Aniko's white IKEA wall unit worked fine in the dining room. But the second she saw West Elm's reclaimed wood buffet, she knew she could refresh this basic piece into a showstopper—and save over $1,100 in the process.

Aniko got the wood for free from a local business, and spent $17 on stain and lacquer. That's a pretty hefty savings!

Check out her blog, A Place of My Taste, for more photos and a tutorial on how she made the oversized art that hangs above her new buffet.

Thank you, Aniko!
