DIY : Refinishing a Sideboard

Sideboards are one of those pieces of furniture that can play a role in a variety of spaces. Taking up their traditional job in a dining room, they offer storage space, room for your decanter and a few classes, a focal point for the room with a mirror over it, and more. I've used them in my living room as a small liquor cabinet and display space. They're a great way to replace those smoked glass TV stand abominations that just need dusting every day.  Local classified are full of old sideboards, but often people are stopped by the idea of having to refinish a piece to get it back to its glory. Fear not, the fine folks at Pretty Handy Girl are here to show you how to DIY this. And yes, the job is canine-approved.
