Furniture Makeover: French Provincial Sideboard

Today’s makeover has become one of my favourites…..seriously it was ugly when I got it….the stain was burgundy….one word hideous! I decided to do a two-tone effect with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in French Linen and Old White with a POP! of colour when you open the drawers and cupboards in Provence (favourite colour in her line). I also kept the original hardware on this as it came with keys and the locks were part of the hardware, I just painted right over them (funny story….I was only given one key by the previous owner but when helping me clean it out my daughter found the second key, I was so excited!). I desperately wanted to keep this one when I finished it, but I knew I couldn’t….It just would not go with my home. 🙁 Good news though this became my first interstate sale and found a new home in Sydney! I was sooo excited that someone wanted it so badly they would pay huge shipping fees. So to make up for the fact I had to say goodbye….I took a billion photos! Sorry!

The new owner was thrilled with her purchase, she sent me a lovely message once it arrived safely. I am happy it went to a good home!

    Wow, you did an amazing job. I love the two tone outside and the pop of colour on the inside. I’d love to do something similar with my sideboard. My white one gets lots of dirty finger prints on the drawers from the kids so a bit of colour would be good. Thanks for the inspiration. 🙂 JulieReplyCancel

    This is gorgeous! Especially the turquoise on the inside. I visited from The Makers link party because I have a vanity dresser and bench that I’m going to be painting for my daughter. I was hoping you’d have listed the kind of paint you used and how you make it look “distressed”? Do you have any other posts that would include that information so I know how to recreate this on my own piece? Thanks!!ReplyCancel

    • Gilly - January 22, 2015 - 9:56 am

      Hi Jill…..I actually do say what type of paint and colours I use, it is all Annie Sloan Chalk Paint on this piece. The blue is called Provence, the other two outer colours are French Linen and Old White. It is finished in clear wax by Annie Sloan and lighting distressed by hand. I use 220 grit sandpaper to distress only the edges, where you would normally see wear and tear on a piece. Hope that helps and thanks for visiting. If you need and help or advice feel free to email me I am happy to help!ReplyCancel

    I’m in love with the pop of color on all the inner pieces! It’s so bright and lively without being over the top. 🙂ReplyCancel

      Thanks Christine! I love the pop of colour, it allows you to have colour without actually committing to it.ReplyCancel
