This retro wooden sideboard is a bit of a tale of two cities – parts of it are in very good condition and quite beautifully finished – like those wonderful brass handles! – and other areas are starting to show their age. Most notable is the damage to the one side where wood filler’s been used. Rather bizarrely I didn’t notice the wood filler when I bought the sideboard – in fact I didn’t even notice it during the restoration process (don’t ask me how I missed it!) – it was only when I was taking the photographs that I finally saw it, which goes to show that while it looks super obvious in our photos, in real life the damage is a lot less noticeable. Even the damage to the one leg doesn’t shout out at you, being towards the back of the sideboard. And for the money, this is still very attractive piece of furniture, with some really nicely executed design ideas!
