Korrie of the Red Hen Home modified plans from Ana White to build this stunning 72” open buffet for a client. I love how the 4×4 legs give this piece such a substantial look. This baby looks solid! Korrie also added decorative hardware which kicks up the rustic/industrial vibe a notch. What a beautiful build!

Pam from Our Adventures in Home Improvement has been blessed with a husband who can build just about anything. Each Christmas he likes to make her a piece of furniture, and 2012 found them in need of table for behind the couch. Pam and her handy hubs modified the design for a buffet from Pottery Barn that provides plenty of storage for extra dishes and such. I can only dream of being able to build a piece of furniture like this!

Bridget from Windgate Lane rose to the challenge when a friend of hers fell in love with a pricey sideboard from Ballard.
