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.


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.


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!
