White Vintage Sideboard Restyled


I got this sideboard about a year ago and have finally got around to restyling it. I hate to brag, but it turned out so beautiful. Don't you think?

Before ...


After...

After two coats of white chalk paint and two coats of clear wax.

Gorgeous vintage legs.



Light sanding to create an aged effect.

Original cutlery drawer lined with vintage music sheets.

All drawers lined with vintage music sheets.

Original vintage hardware.

Claw foot feet.

Shelf storage on both sides.


I'm so tempted to keep this for myself! Seeing the gorgeous original hardware on this sideboard has inspired me to put the original hardware back on my sideboard. After I putty up all the holes, I'll show you how it looks!
