This sweet sideboard was coated in nicotine and grime, which was hiding the  potential of her charm. After a thorough cleaning a custom mix of Driftwood Gray, Millstone and Seagull Gray completed the main body. The drawers were painted in Millstone and highlighted with a feathering of Van Dyke Brown glaze around the edges. The top, middle drawers and side accents were stained with gel stain in the color of Java. HP topcoat in satin sealed her beauty.  The original pulls were cleaned and given and nice fresh brushing of VDB glaze to bring out their detail.  She is now dressed for show and welcoming visitors in a 100+ year old Victorian home!
