The sideboards (or buffets), are so popular nowadays. Who am I not to keep up! This gal was in perfect shape, knockers and all!

I found this at a favorite antique shop in Milford, New Jersey. Allen always has some great pieces and he delivers, for free! Who doesn’t love free? 

She sits in my master bedroom. The delivery guys brought it up stairs, my heroes, they didn’t even scratch a wall! This sucker is h-e-a-v-y! Once she was there, I got to cleaning with Dawn Platinum, wiping it down with a rinse and started painting after it dried. Its a beautiful bluish-green -teal-turqouise. How’s that for a color!

Look at that! Pure serene beauty!

The hardware was all there and they were perfect. I went back and forth in my head whether I wanted to soak them or paint them, or just spread some lovely gilding wax to them. After finishing the piece, I liked them just as they were, tarnished and all.

She’s stunning as she is! Meet Serena!

Do it with purpose!
