Ombre Sideboard

Vintage ombre sideboard. As is often the way at the Antiquechic furniture factory, this was not the original plan for this sideboard. I was going to expose more wood but the top and drawers took so long to sand that I abandoned that idea, they certainly knew how to varnish back in the day – it was like reinforced concrete. I have visions of my sanding arm ending up bulging with muscles like Popeye and the other looking more like Olive Oil’s – anyone under a certain age will have no idea what I’m talking about but that’s nothing new, sometimes I baffle myself 😀
