Caramel Apple Sideboard

Here's the Caramel

And here's the Apple.

I know what you were thinking...

And yah.......yum.
Tis the Season.

So I gave this sideboard some caramel apple love.

 I was a "stick in the mud"
about parting with my Bahama Blue Console.
But we inherited a great piece of family furniture
that will take it's place.
So this hard working buffet
is finding it's way to a new home
and will be nestled in a mustardy gold kitchen.
So Old Blue is getting a new life.

After a base coat of semi-gloss black,
I double loaded my brush with these two reds..
Colonial Red and Apple Red

This is the same red application I used on

I base painted the top in some warm golds.

Then I used these colors to Dip and Drag
across the top.

Then I used glaze, raw sienna and some darker brown and bronze
to create the caramel edges.

I also needed to warm up the silver cup pulls
with a brush of black and brown.

Now it has that cozy warm feel
and will be at home in the new
Mustard Gold Kitchen.

Pin It!

I look forward to sharing my
newly inherited sideboard that will
be up for a redo soon!

Get the Caramel Apples ready.
