funky vintage sideboard


You might all remember me mentioning my fabulous neighbor who loves to go "picking" for me.  Well, she did it again with this piece.  She found it at the Last Chance thrift store in Chamblee.  The drawers all work perfectly and I just love it.

Before:



Although the hardware is unique, it wasn't what I wanted.  So I filled the holes, went with something new and gave the old pieces to my dad, who will use them on his rustic wood crosses that he makes.  {I should post about those some time!}

I used Annie Sloan's old white, but I did use a spray primer first.  I think it might have taken me three years to paint this piece by hand with all of the nooks & crannies, if I hadn't used a primer first.

We also added feet to give the piece some height.  It was a little low for me.

After:






On a completely unrelated note, did anyone else see this in Traditional Home magazine this month?  I love these planters, but almost fell over at the price tag ~ they're in the Sundance catalog at $148 for the set of 3.  Eek!


Hope you're all having a great day!

  1. Wow, you really gave this piece a whole new look! From chunky and outdated to fresh and pretty! Love the addition of the feet! ... Cute baskets, but definitely out of my price range! A painted bushel basket would give you a similar look for next to nothing!

  2. My parents' bedroom dresser looked exactly like this. I moved it out here with me to CA and eventually had it hauled off by a donation company because it was so big and heavy. I am SO wishing I had kept it and done this to it! You have such an amazing vision, Kathie!

  7. pain control or algiatry, is a branch of medicine employing an interdisciplinary approach for easing the suffering and improving the quality of life of those living with chronic pain. The typical pain management team includes medical practitioners, pharmacists, clinical psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, physician assistants, nurses. The team may also include other mental health specialists and massage therapists. Pain sometimes resolves promptly once the underlying trauma or pathology has healed, and is treated by one practitioner, with drugs such as analgesics and (occasionally) anxiolytics.

    Medicine treats injuries and diseases to support and speed healing, and it treats distressing symptoms such as pain to relieve suffering during treatment, healing, and dying. When a painful injury or pathology is resistant to treatment and persists, when pain persists after the injury or pathology has healed, and when medical science cannot identify the cause of pain, the task of medicine is to relieve suffering.
