Our Favourite: Sideboards

Now sideboards are something that I used to associate with my parents house. They inherited a tall, imposing, turned mahogany sideboard with their Victorian house some 40 years ago. It has a ‘secret’ cubby hole which houses a dusty selection of liquor which only sees the light of day around Christmas, and the bottom cupboards are mainly inhabited by my mum’s sewing and linen collections.

It was only when we moved in to our house that I considered that sideboards might be owned by people under the age of 50. Moving from flat living to a semi detatched house; our little ikea table looked rather bereft as the only piece of furniture in our newly aquired dining room.

Having invested in a table befitting of the space, we then decided some storage / extra surface space might be useful and I set about scouring eBay for a sideboard that fit the space. I happened to find one that was refurbished and painted in the same paint colour as the table, and I loved the detail on the original handles.

I’d strongly recommend looking at eBay if you like the vintage look (and don’t have a lot of cash to spare), but here’s a round up of various styles; old and new.
