Busy busy busy. 
Thought I would do a short update before I head out for the day. 

Last week I was in "my" junkin store and found another lovely sideboard (seems I'm in a sideboard season at the moment)


 Drawers did NOT need fixing for a change...yippie!!
 Loving the hardware
 Doors were busted beyond repair (most of one was missing and the other was in pieces)
 Love the Restore! Found exact copies of the doors on my first try :)
 EWWWWWWWWWWWW need I say more?
 Long drawers are great!
 Loving the mirror
Solid Oak...no veneer..happy me! 

 Lots of sanding, staining and painting, then glazing later.
 LOVE LOVE LOVE all the details on this baby!

 Used a lighter stain this time. One called Provincial.
I am in love...so is my husband, thankfully we don't have a spot for this one or I would seriously be tempted to keep it. 

Hoping to finish this one tomorrow as I'm booked up for the rest of today. 

Thinking of all of those who are affected by Sandy....stay safe out there! 

Primitive & Proper 


  1. Oh wow, what a gorgeous piece! I too just finished a nice server, but I haven't posted about it yet.

    Yours has a mirror? Quite unusual for a sideboard!

    Can't wait to see it all finished.

  2. I'm going to finish it tomorrow and can't wait to take proper pics of it. Thank you for your lovely comments :)
