Sideboard time - dining room
Bought a cheap modern and fiddled a bit, used staples and bugle beads for handles. Prob better if used another light wood veneer but had a fancy for two-tone ;) Made a runner by flat hemming two strips and then button-hole stitching the end cut bits over raw edges

Great work with the transformation - have just spotted the detailing on the bow fronted drawers and on the base. Handles are excellent as is your lace cloth.

That is a clever and good transformation. I like the two tones. And the runner is very neatly done. You wouldn't go and exchange the sideboard for the one on eBay, would you! I really admire what you do.

Ooh yes, you bet I would if I can get it or, if it looked too biggly in the dining room I would keep it on top of my real deco sideboard :)

Superb transformation Do, and the staples with bugle beads make absolutely perfect handles - such a clever idea. Great runner too!

No sooner do I get my shake it about and stick things on version done (as I couldn't find any for sale) than a genuine old one turns up today (19th June) curved front and recessed bits etc sitting there on eBay - nice rounded corners and everything, 1:12 and just the ticket. I should learn a little more patience in this game it would seem ;)

What a difference the bow front section changes the look completely.
