This project called for a completely new look for this tired old French antique sideboard, belonging to our client in Stapleford Abbotts, Essex.
We started to prepare this piece by sanding down the sideboard and followed that with an application of 1 coat of Zinsser Bin primer. The full transformation was achieved with two oil-based undercoats and a finishing top-coat in navy blue oil-based eggshell. The fine detailing was highlighted by applying two coats of gold solvent gilding paint.
This piece of furniture was a beautiful design but easily overlooked due to its condition. Now, it is a striking piece of furniture that draws attention.
