Popping in with a quick makeover of this giant sideboard I built back in February. As you can see I originally left the wood natural only sealing it with clear polyurethane but I always knew it needed some color.
I mixed equal parts of two Americana Decor chalky finish colors together to get the most beautiful midnight blue that really helps the copper hardware stand out:
The wood was beautiful before but in this situation I think it’s even better painted:
Americana Decor chalky paint is extremely user friendly, I didn’t even move the sideboard out of the room. I removed the long copper pipe pieces and covered the remaining hardware with tape then did quick light sanding of the polyurethane that was previously applied.
I took both pots of paint and mixed them in one larger bucket then applied the paint using a foam roller:
After the paint is dry seal everything with clear wax then buff it out.
This sideboard has TONS of great storage. The plans to build your own are here.
