This huge solid wood sideboard was in need of a modern makeover.  Whilst it had nothing wrong with it; it didn’t match my customer’s décor.  This is an excellent example of where upcycling is a better alternative to buying new furniture.  This piece was stripped of its orange varnish, right down to the bare wood.  Several layers of an Ebony Oil Stain were then applied.  Once dry, the final coat was buffed and polished for a subtle sheen.  Stain is a great alternative to paint if you want to accentuate the wood grain – and it suited this piece perfectly.  New brass drawer pulls were added to complete the look. Now this piece is a modern, elegant and unique showstopper!
