A Mid Century Modern Sideboard in Pale Green
This handsome vintage walnut sideboard from 1967 came from an immaculately maintained house, built the same year, in a quiet corner of West Hartford two weeks ago. It was in wonderful condition, but needed some surface work, badly faded by sun exposure over the last sixty years that it had resided in the same position, next to the same dining table, in the same house. I refinished it custom for some lovely new clients who had me redo an antique Empire cupboard for them last week. We went with the same color scheme, rich cherry color stain on top and drawers, the palest green for the case, and a cream interior, to encourage continuity throughout their home.
