Ugly Sideboard Makeover

Oh my.
This piece was not pretty.
It’s a little hard on the eyes.
Maybe a little painful to even look at.

sideboard beforeI know what you are thinking.  

What on Earth can be done to that piece?  It is REALLY ugly.  
Yeah, I knew that when I got it, but I knew a little paint could save the day.
Paint is an amazing thing.

  3. You did a wonderful job on the side board, I just love it. How did you do it and what paint did you use? I would love to paint a piece like that. I love the black with the wood showing. It really looks like it came from a furniture store. Please tell me how I can do this.
