I love a good thrift store. You never ever know what you'll find buried amongst the used luggage and stone washed mom jeans from 1998. When I was out antiquing last week I swung by the
Salvation Army over near Putnam, CT, just on the off chance they had some fun furniture. I struck gold with this gorgeous vintage cherry sideboard. Once refinished, it had hands down one of the prettiest tops I've ever seen. You can always tell I'm in love with a top when I don't stain it, and just seal it.
This is the cherry without anything but poly on it. In a way it reminds me of agate or malachite with all those earthy swirling forms. I did this piece custom for an awesome client who lives in a stunning home and has impeccable taste (my kind of gal!). She went with a beautiful green just a shade zippier than sage. I love the color so much I'm going to paint my barstools in my kitchen in it.
The piece has a definite French Provincial feel to it, which I further embraced with a liberal amount of distressing and dark wax. The drawer pulls are original and in their original patina.

And here it is in it's beautiful new home!
