Antique White Sideboard with Java Gel Stained Mahogany Top

By Door Thirty Four in Orpington, Kent, GB

This beautiful sideboard had great curves and lines. Simply gorgeous. The solid wood top was looking a bit poorly but after a good scrub and sand down, it was ready for it's makeover. 

This was the first time I'd used Java Gel Stain and it was wiping marmite on and off! I used two coats to get an even coverage and once the High Performance Top Coat had been applied, it was rich and dark and just yummy.

I used 'antique white' milk paint on the body, again sealed with HPTC in satin finish. The new mercury glass knobs added a touch of glam to a fabulous new piece. 

The new owners were delighted. I was delighted. Simple yet striking and well worth the effort.
