Isn’t this antique sideboard stunning?

Although she was beautiful to begin with, her watermarks and scratches made her the ideal candidate for a Faye-style makeover.

To begin with, Faye gave the entire piece a good cleaning with a mix of water and vinegar. This is her go-to method for almost every furniture makeover she takes on!

Next, she gave the body a light scuff sanding to remove the shine on the veneer.

She gave the entire body and backboard a couple of coats of Vanilla Frosting, and re-stained the top.

Finally, to help accentuate the details, Faye wiped on some Smoky Quartz glaze.
