Nautical Sideboard
Another client inherited an antique sideboard from his beloved grandmother. The old paint was chipping, but it was still in good shape. He wanted a nautical theme with maps of the surrounding area. On top, I used a faux wood technique with a couple of Colonial period exotic postcards. On the front, I painted nautical maps of Beaufort and Savannah, and added a compass on the bottom.
