Dining Room Sideboard

I wanted to find the perfect sideboard for my dining room. I took measuring tape into the room and measured out my “perfect” piece of furniture. Several days later, I found a dresser/sideboard (look at all the drawers!) in ReStore with the EXACT measurements I had created! It had to be mine.

All it took was a little black paint and stain (for the antiquing)

and it became the exact sideboard I was looking for. I added a polycrylic topcoat to make it durable (LOVE Minwax Polycrylic….it’s all I use.) All of the drawers hold serving trays, silver, linens, etc. It’s functional and well, just pretty to look at.
