This beautiful sideboard is the kind of piece I’m always hoping to find for a reasonable price at thrift stores and tag sales. I was never that lucky, so when a customer sent me a picture of it and said she wanted it refinished I was over the moon, and couldn’t wait to put my hands on it.
It was even better when I read she wanted it gray, with a pop color on the inside. More precisely, a hot pink! That was too good to be true! The kind of project that reminds me how much I love my job. Its classy, it’s different, it’s beautiful and it is fun!
If you’ve seen some of my recent posts, you probably recognize that gray. It is the exact same color as the French Provincial Dresser I painted back in November, which is until today the most viewed, most commented, and most liked piece I’ve ever done.
Check that post if you want to learn in details how I did it. There is a full tutorial there and a short video on the glazing process.
Painted with Benjamin Moore Steel Wool and Valspar Passionate Peony
Finished with black glaze (Valspar clear glaze mixed with black latex paint 4:1)
Now let’s see what matters. Pictures!
