What You Need

  • Eight-cube storage unit (we used one from the Better Homes & Gardens collection at Walmart)
  • Damp cloth
  • 3/4-inch plywood
  • Measuring tape
  • Circular saw or table saw
  • Sandpaper
  • Primer 
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Furniture legs
  • Painters tape
  • Gold spray paint
  • Construction adhesive
  • 1-inch screws
  • Screwdriver or drill
Optional Embellishments:
  • Light gray acrylic paint
  • Feathers
  • Small artists brush
  • Dark gray acrylic paint
  • Gold-tone stemware racks
  • 1/2-inch screws
  • X dividers

Step 1: Assemble the Cube

Remove cube from packaging and assemble according to manufacturer's instructions. Wipe clean with a damp cloth to remove any dust, glue, or grime. 

Step 2: Create Top and Base

Craft a top and base from 3/4-inch plywood: Measure the length and width of the longest sides of the eight-cube unit, add an inch to each measurement for a slight overhang, and cut using a circular saw or table saw. Sand, prime, and paint the boards to match the shelf; let dry.

Step 3: Paint Legs

Use painters tape to block off half of each leg. Spray-paint the other half gold. Let dry. 

Step 4: Attach Top, Base, and Legs

Center and glue the top and base to the cube unit using construction adhesive. Attach legs to the base plywood with 1-inch screws. 

Step 5: Add Embellishments

If desired, add a variety of adornments to the buffet. Create a faux-marble top by mixing a 3:1 ratio of light gray acrylic paint to water. Paint diagonal lines across the surface with a feather. Using a small artists brush, drizzle splatters of light gray paint to create flecks. Repeat with dark gray acrylic paint. To show off glasses, install gold-tone stemware racks inside one cube using 1/2-inch screws. You can also outfit the cubes with X dividers designed to fit inside individual cubbies.
