This sideboard was given a thorough sanding and the top was stripped using Citristrip brand safe stripper.

After the top was stripped it was sanded to a very smooth finish and stained in Provincial stain by Minwax. It was then poly'ed with a wipe on poly in satin finish. The base was painted in "rapture blue" by Sherwin Williams, and then distressed by hand with 160 grit sandpaper. The body was then wiped with some Provincial stain on a rag to give it the antiqued look. This is by far the most popular piece of furniture I have completed due to the color, finish, and style!

  • This image is as close as I have to a before shot, thought it is more of a "during". At this point in time the top had been stripped, but not yet sanded, and the base had been primed for paint. What a difference color can make on a drab piece!

    Hi, Neighbor! Nice job.

    I'm not normally a blue fan, but this really speaks to me!
