A Fresh Federal Sideboard

This was a custom refinish project for a client, part of a set of mid 20th century mahogany pieces from G.Fox, which for you out of staters was our big fancy schmancy department store for generations in downtown Hartford. The set also includes a china hutch, which I'll be starting tomorrow, and a six chair dining set, which is already refinished and back in its home.

        I created a custom color for the client, the palest palest shade of green with a heavy dose of warmth to make it an earth tone. I sanded, stained, and sealed the old mahogany veneer top to make it shine with its original luster.

And here she is, all done!
