Sitting pretty

 I snapped a few pics while refurbishing a couple of chairs for my office.  The pictures are not great quality but I thought you might want to see the results non the less.

This 9-drawer dresser was refurbished and purchased for a baby boy's nursery.  

This dresser was sold for $400.00.
Lets see what other dressers, similar in size, sell for:
Pottery Barn dressers:

Yellow Refurbished Buffet

 Not long ago my good friend asked me to refurbish her blah buffet. As you can see from the picture below, we were able to turn this from lack luster to a buffet that set the inspiration for an entire room.

If I were to sell this piece I would ask $450.00. But what would a piece like this cost in a furniture store?  I found a couple buffets comparable in size and stature.  
Personally I was a bit shocked at the prices of furniture stores, are you?,en_US,pd.html?start=35&cgid=shop-products-dining-room-storage-display
The above buffet is the Aurora Server from Ethan Allen. This piece retails for $1,799.00
The lovely piece is the Hampstead Teak Buffet from Pottery Barn. This piece retails for $1,299.00

The Maldive Buffet is slightly bigger than our Yellow HDV Refurbished Buffet.  I choose this piece because it's distressed look is similar to our yellow piece.  The Maldive Buffet retails for $1,899.00

The cheapest buffet shown is over $800.00 more expensive than our one of a kind, refurbished piece. I may be bias but without hesitation I would choose the HDV buffet over the other, more expensive, options.  How about you - which would you choose (And I want your HONEST opinion).
