I was lucky to find 3 sideboards for a total of $75.00. This is one of them. It was in rough shape to say the least. After much gluing and stabilizing, I then stripped the paint from the top. Sanded, stained and varnished. I painted the bottom in an antique white. It had most of the original hardware except 2 knobs. I decided to add a little bling which you will see on the top drawer. This houses all my media material in our living room area. Its a beauty!

docmom writes: absolutely love it. My fav projects are bringing back old furniture. I'm very lucky, have master carpenter for junkin' buddy, so he makes sure the furniture is stable, even wields a mean power sander....then I get to do the fun paint part. I "make" a dresser for my gift for every new family baby, and paint a personal note in the top drawer. Oldest grand daughter is 12, and still has hers. She ask for a dressing table for her room for Christmas. She is BIG Beatles fan, so I've collected a few old fan magazines with some old pics to decopage on drawer fronts, and painting some cartoonish "fab 4" portraits on top.....She's gonna scream like the girls did in the 60s....Paper dolls would look good on a little girl dresser, oh...hope the next baby is a girl...I like that idea....Love your old "new" furniture. So much old beauty, and your facelifts make them fresh and new again... Posted: 6:51 pm on June 25th
