After, Before, Curbside Finds, DIY

Is this buffet amazing or what?!?

I may have stalked her on big pickup item (can you stalk a buffet?).  It was sitting curbside, gleaming at me and I knew I needed it.  Only problem?  There was a guy standing next to it taking other items from the curb.  Not being sure whether he had dibs on the buffet or not,
