This is the horrid colour we have lived with for nearly 6 years while we concentrated our efforts on the inside. It is a funny tan/pink/salmon colour with burgundy trim…I don’t care for it!
You can see it here over the top of the original colour and what a difference it makes. I can’t wait for it to be done. I would love to hear what you all think of our new colour choices.
Now, here is my $5 sideboard as you last saw it…remember it was on it’s way to the tip and had been out in the rain for about a week or so before I snapped it up…
I replaced the handles with these beautiful antique copper finish pulls on the drawers and matching small door pulls on the doors.
I was going to just paint it all white, but when I had done that you could see a lot of the bits that were beyond repair, so I thought I would use that to my advantage and got some stain and ran over it all with a rag, concentrating it on the edges and then going over the middle of each panel with more white to give it a sort of French wash. I then sanded the edges (just a little) to make it seem old, which it is…and voila! New sideboard for our Kitchen. I can’t move it in until I have finished painting the walls white. Then I will show you it dressed. Please tell me what you think of it all.
