My heart is going pitter-pat for this one! I purchased this sideboard last week at the Habitat ReStore in Baltimore. It was marked down to $30, so I snatched it up and brought it home with me. I forgot to take a true before picture complete with ugly hardware, but hopefully this gives you an idea….
I sanded, primed, and painted it. I chose a soft French blue, but I knew I wanted it to be weathered and distressed looking. I didn’t take a picture of the color before I antiqued it, but here is a dresser I did in the same color a while back.
Once the sideboard was painted, I distressed it, and weathered it with a dark gray stain which I brushed on, and then wiped off. I am so happy with the effect the stain gave the sideboard. I would love to keep this for my own dining room, but you can’t keep them all, now can you? I really hope it finds its way to a nice home where it will be loved and appreciated as I would have done.
