Updated Sideboard - Back to the Future

It was 1999 and I had just bought a new home. It was the first time that I had purchased a home that was all mine. It was also the first time I had purchased a dining room set. I loved that set and was so happy with it for many years. Unfortunately it became more outdated as the years past and two years ago I decided to refinish the table to extend it use a little longer. I found the instruction on pinterest and followed them to the tee. It was my first painted furniture project and honestly it was not the best but it lasted two years. I just threw it out last week, the chairs went out a year ago. The table's design was outdated so I didn't hesitate to throw it out but the matching sideboard had (has) more modern lines and even through there is a glass insert I decided to restore it. 
 






I mixed my own chalk paint and finished it with rub on wax (a little dark mixed into the clear). 






I spray also painted the hardware and found three knobs at the HomeDepot on sale for .89 each. 



I love it!


Thanks for visiting,
