Solid carved oak sideboard upcycled & hand painted in windermere using a dark teal.

Close Encounters Oak Sideboard


Beautiful in teal!


We were commissioned to transform our clients sideboard, which they inherited with their new home here in the lakes. It was covered top to bottom in thick chalk paint and wax, covering all of the carvings and finer details. Our challenge was to strip it back completely and start again.


After 25 hours of careful hand stripping & sanding it, it was finally ready for re-finishing. We chose a deep teal to complement the clinets interior, of blue and graphite tones. The teal sits perfectly againts the plush velvet design from Linwood, echoing the surrounding Lake District landscape.


Dark staining the legs to match the rich floorboards in the room adds weight to the piece. For an added pop we painted the interior in a brillant red which contrasts perfectly againist the teal.


We take pride in the details of each of our pieces, making sure that every one goes out to the highest standard, inside & out, top & bottom. Using the best quality materials from oils to fabrics and most recently choosing hardware to suit this standard! We are in awe of buster & punch’s quality, they are beautifully designed and so weighty, the perfect addition.
