This item is a great example of what restoring furniture is all about.
We recently rescued this sideboard from the back of a garage, covered in cobwebs and dust where it has been living as a workbench for the last 50 years. It even had a wooden sleeper bolted to the top with a vice for heavy duty workmanship!
We brought it back to our workshop where our team lovingly set about bringing it back to life. The previous coats of paint (approximately 4 coats) had to be sanded off before we were able to get to the natural pine wood which was underneath. Once the natural wood was revealed we applied a couple of coats of brown wax to give it this current finish.
It is a very well used item of furniture with bumps and scrapes all over it. There are even a couple of large nails in the sideboard top which we have used to fill the large bolt holes from its old life. (you can see these in the close up photos). The rough and ready nature of this piece really adds to its charm and has helped to give all the different shadings you can see in the finish which just add to its character.
