Antique Sideboard Makeover {Part 2}

On Tuesday I showed you this sideboard that I have had the privilege of making over for my friend Carrie.   Click here if you missed Antique Sideboard Makeover {Part 1}. I left you yesterday at it primed.   Carrie wanted the piece painted black for a nice neutral base for all of her pretties in her dining room.

I used my air sprayer and air compressor and blasted the piece with some black paint (Black Suede by Behr slightly watered down).   Carrie wanted the embellishments to be slightly highlighted.   I slightly sanded just the details of the piece to bring out the character a little more.

I didn’t want the piece to look too distressed but rather just bring out the best parts of the piece.

I actually decided not to change the hardware to a different color.   I think the antiqued brass picks up on the highlighted edges.   So I just scrubbed them with soap and water and then reattached them.

Are you ready for the big reveal?   Can I tell you that I am dying that I have to return this piece to its owner.   I want to keep it so bad!   Come on Carrie you don’t realllllly want this fantastic, sentimental, antique back buffet in your house do you?

Oh my gosh – I am totally over the moon with how this turned out and so excited that a piece of history has been restored to its rightful place as the show stopping piece in her dining room.
