    Sideboard transformation into a Coffee Bar................

    Mrs.FW has a sideboard(buffet) that was for her mom. I have no idea how old it is, but it was in her mom's house when I met her in '71; and it was very old back then.
    Since her mom passed away, we've had it in storage and are just now getting around to refinishing it. When completed, it will be use in the dining room as a coffee bar.
    It had a beveled mirror in the upper framework, but I removed it, as the backing was coming loose. Plans are to inset a section of rusted corrugated roofing instead.

    This morning, I sanded the top with a belt sander and removed the lower drawer and framework. The two upper drawers will be reinstalled and I'll add two shelves below. Mrs.FW plans to paint it with a light gray chalking paint finish and rework the top with a dark walnut stain.

    More to come as this project progresses.




    BTW, these pics were taken this morning. Check out the green grass and the blooming shrubbery.

    Looking forward to seeing the finished project. Not sure how the rusted corrugated will match.

    I agree with Rope_Chucker that the corrugated metal will probably look out of place. I suggest looking into having a new mirror made, or make a tile insert, or something along those lines.

    I think a mirror in a coffee bar would be out of place. Who wants to see the back of a Kureg (or what ever other machines, stuff will be on there)? I like the idea of the roofing. Do what's best for the intended purpose as well as what ever it is that you want to do, after all...It's yours.

    Mrs. FW agrees that the mirror will look better, but it will need re-silvering.

    Mrs.FW and I agree.

    You did not misunderstand.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Thanks for all your input.

    I searched the interweb last evening for processes to re-silver the beveled-edge glass, which is original to the sideboard. Looks like a time consuming process, but time is on my side.

    The chalking paint, other than the top, is what she wants. The reason for this is one of the side panels has ripples in it. She thinks, with these ripples, painting it wouldn't matter. At this point, with all of your input she is seriously re-thinking the finish.

    I told her I could replace the rippled side panel with a section of Luan, then stain it to match. If we go this route, the front doors and lower drawer will remain removed. She wants a bottom and middle shelf, no matter what.

    It is a fine piece of kitchen furniture and was her mom's. She grew up with this sideboard in her mom's kitchen, so it's part of her childhood memories. Whatever she decides to do with it is up to her. The way she looks at it, no matter how it turns out, it is still a part of rememberance of her mom.

    Here's my .02, because that's all it's worth. Knowing what your dining room turned out looking like, I think the gray paint and walnut top would look good in there. It would be a modern take on a piece of furniture that Mrs. FW's has great memories of, her interpretation of it. As for the mirror replacement....how about putting some ship lap in that section that matches the wall in the dining room? Kind of tie it into the room?

    Between you and your bride, not matter what you decide, it is going to look awesome because you both do excellent work.

    I think you both should do what works for you. My thoughts when I first seen the pic was, "that would make a great wet bar". It's the right size. Good luck with it.

    You might want to check the cost of a "new" beveled mirror, a replacement.

    I had this old window from Missey's folks. I had stored in the garage for years and years. It was taken out of a remodel they were doing and I had planned on using it some day, some way. I don't remember what the three mirrors cost but she was very pleased with the finished product.
