An Antique Sideboard in Bright Summer Green
I got this stunning sideboard as part of a group from New Haven this past Saturday. I love the carving and the fine, well developed lines. I refinished the top to let the mahogany show to its fullest, and painted the case in a custom mixed bright summery green called Tart Apple. I painted the interior in a dark charcoal gray. I distressed and waxed the case and used the original handsome bail brass pulls. I love this piece and I wish I had a place for it in my own home, but alas, all my rooms are full already.
