Upcycled Vintage Sideboard Cabinet

Resourced from the freecycle, this cabinet, sturdy and charming, had badly damaged veneer on the cupboard doors and drawers. I went through a process of filling the holes, sanding down the wood filler and hand painting the surfaces. I have chosen a contrast combination of dark blue and lime green colours, there are two coats on a undercoat and re-positioned original handles. The top is treated with oil based varnish for worktops.

Although I had fun doing this I haven’t anticipated how extensive and time consuming the works will be and also how much space this will take, so fingers crossed now for the item to be sold on ebay.
