It's from Life in the Fun Lane (http://www.inthefunlane.com/) Holly fixes and redoes vintage furniture and sells them at her store (www.whiteberryreinvented.com). She also does custom furniture pieces and takes requests so check it out if you are interested.

Good luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Houzz Interview: Life in the Fun Lane!
Note the fun detail of file drawer hardware on this piece. It's perfect for an office, a bedroom, hallway, kitchen or as a dining room buffet.
Becky Harris added this to Elements of the Dining Room: Buffets
This credenza has been repurposed to serve as a bar, and the original spirit of the smorgasboard lives on!
Lily Gahagan added this to Have Lemons? Make a Decorative Statement
Always add a couple lemons to any bar setting. Not only do they brighten your drinks, they keep away scurvy! Arr.
Becky Harris added this to Update That Beachy Style!
A seaside painting, outdoor sconces and a pastel paint job lend a relaxed beachy feeling to this home. More: Craft Modern A Colorful Cottage in the Hamptons Design Lessons from a Nantucket Inn
Shawn Gauthier added this to Got Stuff? Turn it Into Decor
Wine glasses. Setting wine glasses in a grouping on your banquette not only adds a stylish element, but it helps you cut down on party prep. With the wine glasses permanently set out, you're always ready to go.
Cate West Zahl added this to Accessories 101: A Splash of Milk Glass
Milk glass also goes well with clear glass. Mixing the materials in this tablescape shows a restraint that feels like an update on traditional décor.
We've seen a lot of pieces turned into bars and buffets of all sizes, from a nightstand topped with a tray to this wonderful office cabinet. A fresh coat of paint and refreshing or replacing hardware can give a piece an entirely new look. See the rest of this clever blogger's home
With a fresh coat of paint, this credenza was transformed into a bar/buffet, depending what's on top. The generous drawers are perfect for storing linens, silverware and candles. See more furniture repurposing projects in this creative home
Shawn Gauthier added this to From the Runways Home: Pastels Spring Back
Take it a step further by refinishing a piece of furniture in a pastel. This vintage dresser maintains its classic feel while appearing fresh in a light shade of green. When paired with the ocean artwork, the entire vignette is the image of aesthetic serenity.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Take a Shine to Candle Sconces
Emphasize a focal point. Increase the appearance of your artwork by installing a pair of candle sconces on either side. Choose a finish that complements the art. To keep the candles from stealing the spotlight in cases like this, choose white or off white.
Samantha Schoech added this to Dip a Toe Into Modern Nautical Style
It's the painting that does it. Don't you agree? I would maybe add a single rope knot or glass float to complete the tableau.
Natalie Myers added this to Pick the Perfect Dining Room Storage
You: Are a conservationistYour storage: A salvaged and repurposed bureauA repurposed chest is a great solution for those handy DIYers who get a thrill out of saving furniture with good bones from the garbage dump. A solid chest of drawers found on Craigslist, curbside or at a thrift store can be transformed into a stunning dining room buffet with a few coats of paint and new hardware.
Seek out an unusual, inexpensive piece to serve as a buffet. A desk, Parsons table, wooden file cabinet or credenza, tall media cabinet — all of these things can be found at secondhand shops and transformed into lovely sideboards in the dining room with some sanding and fresh paint or stain.
