For my front room I bought this 1940's sideboard that was pretty beat up -




and we sanded it and painted it in a day and a half and now it looks like this -



it cost £30 which was a bargin.

Haku, I knew your were good.

Ohhhh Ben.... Nice sideboard...

I am not a fan of painting wood... And I don't know about across the pond, but in the US, almost all value is erased when a piece is painted rather than refinished...

I am a huge antiques fan, and I do a lot of refinishing... So I LOVE the piece itself...

I know what you mean, it was in a bad way though. I had to replace a few bits but I guess it gets a new lease of life rather than ending up on the scrap heap. At least if its white it can be re-stained to its original colour easily.

I know it can be a b***h to refinish some of these old pieces...

Here is my last project...
A 1930"s buffet that was used as Garage storage for the last 15 years..

Started like this






And ended up like this... ( Now holds my 50' flat screen)

Yes, that is a beautiful piece, if it was stronger it would have made a good fish tank stand...
