Well this has taken me longer than expected but I have finally finished this beautiful antique sideboard! Here is the before:
And here is the final product:
This was custom painted for a client in Martha Stewart’s Morning Fog, and sanded to a smooth finish.
The top was sanded down to the raw wood and stained in Minxwax’s American Walnut.
The whole piece was then very lightly distressed and coated in Minwax furniture wax.
It has turned out quite nicely!
The small details are what make a piece special…
I decided to dress the sideboard with greens that remind me of the springtime for which I am now desperate. It is very, very cold here this week!
If you have been following along with my Pinterest – Tried, Tested and True series, check back this Friday to see whether or not buttermilk ages the terracotta pots. These pictures were taken after about 24 hours.
The fresh, light color of the sideboard contrasts beautifully with the dark walnut stain. I’m ready for a spring tea in the dead of winter!
Thanks for stopping by to see my latest creation. Think warm thoughts and have a great day!
