  6. Another great piece. Isn't it amazing what a little paint can do? And you always pick the perfect color for the piece. See you in a bit.

  15. Wah! This makes me sad! A few years ago, my grandmother gave me a sideboard like this. She couldn't understand why anyone would want it since it was old, but I could invision it painted. However, the leg broken off when trying to move it from the truck and eventually my family talked me into letting them take it to the dump.

    Now that we are seeing these online, we wish now that we had glued the leg back on and painted it.

    Yours really is pretty!

  16. I really like the handles. I think the handles of a desk or sideboard is what really makes the furniture stand out artistically. A handle isn't just something that helps you open the cabinet. A handle is part of the art of the object.
