Drexel Sideboard {Napoleonic Blue}

 This week's project was a Drexel Sideboard makeover. Have you ever had the pleasure of moving one of these beauties? Well if you have then you know they are made really well and are heavier then they look. Good thing this one has handy wheels tucked underneath to make the job a bit easier!

The newly refreshed piece is painted in Annie Sloan Napoleonic Blue, distressed and antiqued with dark wax. {the actual color is a bit darker then it photographed} The original hardware was a really yellow brass so I opted to paint all of it in a blend of Napoleonic and Graphite chalk paint. The reason I didn't paint it straight up blue like the rest of the piece was because I wanted a slight contrast between the body and the's not too drastic just enough of a variation to create some depth. And finally, in my typical style, I sanded and stained the top to complete the project.

As always, thanks for stopping by to take a peek! Have a fantastic day!
