I have wanted to do a sideboard pretty much since I started redoing furniture, a desire made all the more palpable after seeing this gorgeous sideboard that my good friend Cassie from Primitive and Proper did many moons ago. (This has to be one of my all-time fave furniture makeovers of all time.)
I came across this slightly-neglected-but-never-the-less-gorgeous French buffet at Goodwill and it became an immediate must have. I LOVE the bowed drawer fronts! (I had to do a little reconstructive surgery on the applique with some wood filler, but all’s well now…)
So I had a plan to paint her gray. Cara needed a little bit of convincing, but I think she came around. :) A dark walnut stain on the top for a two-toned look and some heavy distressing, the original ornately beautiful hardware, and we called her done!
I think I’m in love… wishing I had more room in my house…
This project is competing in the Furniture Makeover Challenge at The CSI Project!
