Old Gold Sideboard

By Kate Clowes Holt

Vintage bow fronted sideboard - changes colour in the light. 


Method - base coat of FMP Bedford, FMP bronze sponged on in a random method.  Top coat of FMP antique glaze applied with crunched up newspaper.  Dark wax and rub and buff to age and highlight the details.

General Finishes Gel Stain in the colour Java used on the top to bring out the natural grain of the wood and varnished to give a beautiful but practical surface. 

The inside of the top drawer has been recovered in black felt and the rest of the inside was cleaned and waxed.
