FINAL UPDATE BELOW!
Several months ago I posted about changing our old and very outdated dresser into a buffet. I painted it black and it was much improved. My original post is here.
Over the last few days I've REALLY turned the dresser into a sideboard. I added 6 legs, new knobs with some of my Grandmother's costume jewelry attached, and a 2nd color of paint that matches one of the darker colors in my dining room curtains. I also used some leftover door surround to add some height to the piece.
Here it is now:
If you have any ideas about what to use for the center drawers (knobs, handles, what have you) please let me know. Any suggestions, even the tiniest, to help improve the new sideboard are appreciated!
I decided that the black was too shiny for my tastes, so I sanded it down and put a 'tan' wash on the black, and a black wash on the 'tan.' Hope you like it!
