Fusion champlain dresser turned sideboard love

dark wax was added to give added dimension and definition to all the great details





This statement piece sold in about half an hour of posting and is now serving as an amazing sideboard in a fabulous home where it provides loads of display area and storage for the family. Thinking outside the box for a pieces purpose and refreshing it in a new amazing color can give so many pieces you may have new meaning and use. Check out Fusion Mineral Paint for a selection of fantastic colors to choose from.
