I purchased this sideboard a few weeks ago and boy, is it heavy! Solid wood and very large. This has been quite the project. I had to completely sand the top down to get out all of the deep scratches and apply multiple coats of both primer and Annie Sloan’s Paris Grey to cover the deep, dark wood stain. However, the result is lovely. I happen to ♥ Paris Grey.
The cabinet doors originally had locks but not only was the key missing, but the keyholes were also gone. I ended up taking out the lock mechanisms and drilling new holes for pulls. Luckily I had two vintage pulls that tie in nicely with the original drawer hardware. I also distressed this one quite a bit to give it some character.Do you love the old tin lantern candle holder? I plan on taking this to Lucketts.The storage in this sideboard is amazing. It has a wonderful little drawer for cutlery and two shelves. The inside was painted in blue for a pop of color.A gorgeous, vintage buffet! Just needs a few good men to move it lol!
I’m now off to back-to-school night. Yes, again. Apparently in high school, they torture the parents twice per year 😉 Yes, I’m only kidding!

That is a big beautiful buffet – perfect in gray!
Beautiful buffet! I love everything that you did to this piece!
Thanks so much!
This is so beautiful, how far away from Lucketts are you, is that where your booth is?
Hi Liz, I only sell online but I do the Luckett’s spring and fall markets. They are SO much fun. I live about an hour away, so not too bad. I used to sell out of On a Whim in Lucketts but with the commute there and back it was too much. I am happier selling online and doing my own thing!
Love the transformation, especially the blue inside. Do you have a booth in Lucketts, or do you plan to show at the May fair?
Thanks so much! I used to sell in Lucketts but now I only do the Old Luckett Store’s spring and fall markets. I’ll be there this May!
