Many Faces

5.16.2011

I had a couple of requests to see the many different colors my antique sideboard, that I shared yesterday, has worn so I did some digging and here they are. Forgive the poor photo quality of the older ones. What a difference new cameras and practice makes.



Here it is in its original color. This is when it was in the master bedroom.
Funny seeing how my room has changed since blogging.

Painted it the first time with Georgian Green paint by Benjamin Moore that was on my kitchen walls and is on my sun room walls.  Glazed this piece with mocha glaze by Valspar found at Lowes.

Moved it to the foyer after painting it green.

 Next I painted it silver mist by Sherwin Williams.

Silvermist is just a pretty blue gray.

Then the idea of adding the fabric to the doors popped in my head.

This was a very easy project using Mod Podge for the first time. You can find that post HERE.

And her final look.

That is her many faces.

Thanks so much for all the comments regarding her new look.
Hopefully she will stay this way for quite some time!



sneak peek of something else I worked on on Friday

along with another change in here that I did all weekend and some of today.
Mr. Savvy and I love the subtle change.

  1. hehehe...Mr. Savvy has to love the change..not much choice. Besides he knows it will not be for long. That is what Mike is starting to ask me now, how long will this color last LOL?

  2. Gosh, Kim, your hands must be tired from all the paint treatments;) Each and every one looks great. I had no idea you had added the fabric panels. I thought it came that way, very very well done.

  14. Thanks for humoring me. I do love seeing all the versions. I was pretty thrilled with it the first time you painted it. But yes, this paint treatment is very special. It does get better and better. Is that a new mantel color? I can't wait to see that.

  24. Hi Kimmie! Oh, I'm sure there's a lot of us in Blogland who would arm wrestle you for that gorgeous piece you have.
    Glad to hear you have Mr. Savvy trained so well! :)

  26. Your sideboard really is a work of art. It looks as though it comes straight out of a French chateau. It really is amazing what you can achieve with paint and a creative flair. x Sharon

  28. I really like the sideboard even in the first photo. But you have really taken that little thing on a journey. So pretty!

  29. I love that you have kept the top a wooden stain, makes for a nice contrast to the piece. My favorite spot was in your bedroom.

  30. This is just beautiful. I have a piece of furniture that I would love to redo but I am so afraid especially since it is an antique that has been in the family for some time now. One of these days I am going to dive in and do it. I love the first set of colors you used so I have bookmarked this for when I get brave ;)

  31. Just gorgeous as always. You can make anything into a fantastic piece. I just talked my friend into painting her oat mantel and it turned out so well. Love it all!
