Welcome back my Beauties!
Finally I made it back with this post I promised a while back.

Rescued vintage sideboard BEFORE makeover   Do it yourself using General Finishes Milk paint in custom color
You may remember a few weeks ago (maybe a month??? :) )
a friend of mine texted and said he was cleaning out a house he was going to be doing some construction on and didn't want to see this beauty go into the dump.
I of course instantly told my husband to empty out the truck so I would be able to go pick it up and we were there within a few hours to grab it. 
It needed a LOT of work, but when I am saving a free rescued piece I don't seem to mind.
I feel like its been through so much, it deserves to finally get some attention.

STRIPPING VENEER FROM AN ANTIQUE RESCUED SIDEBOARD BUFFET BEFORE SANDING DIY MAKEOVER
So the first thing I did as you can see was to peel off what was left of the veneer on top.
It took a little elbow grease and my scraper but I made short work of it. 

SANDING THE TOP OF THE RESCUED VINTAGE SIDEBOARD BEFORE STAINING
Once all the veneer was off I could get to sanding.
I used my Ryobi sander and a few different grit sandpaper and smoothed out the whole top to prep it for stain.

AFTER SANDING SANDING THE TOP OF THE RESCUED VINTAGE SIDEBOARD BEFORE STAINING TOP
After it was sanded I wiped it down with some tack cloths and got to work on staining.
MINWAX WOOD FINISH IN DARK WALNUT PENETRATING STAIN FOR FURNITURE
Since I was going to go with a rich color for the base of the cabinet I wanted a deep dark tone for the top.
So I used Minwax Dark Walnut.
When it was dry I just used some wipe on poly to seal it.

Now the fun part.
After lightly sanding and cleaning the whole base cabinet and securing all loose doors and things
and Twilight, (in a 1/1-ish ratio)to give an awesome dark greenish blue.
(I kept the legs dark and just cleaned them up with some Restore a finish)
RUSTOLEUM COPPER SPRAY PAINT FOR MAKING OVER HARDWARE

While the paint was drying I just grabbed some vintage hardware and gave it a couple coats of Rustoleum copper spray paint to play off the blue green color.
