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 filler and hand painting the surfaces. I have choosed a contrast colours of dark blue and lime green, there are two coats on a undercoat and repositioned original handles. The top is treated with oil based varnish for worktops.

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