Vintage Two-Toned Sideboard

You know what? I feel like it has been absolutely forever since I have shared a piece of furniture with you all. And, it sort of has been. Which, is completely unusual for me.
This past weekend, I got back into the painting groove and finished a few custom orders. One being this lovely, vintage, two-toned sideboard.

I am so super thrilled with how it came out, but can I just share the ridiculous struggle of trying to remove layer upon layer of poly from the top so that I could stain it? Kinda nightmarish and involved two attempts at stripping the poly off, along with tons of sanding and cleaning.
The majority of the sideboard is painted in Peacock. It is truly a favorite color of mine and one that has made a strong appearance in my own home in the past.
I just very lightly distressed the sideboard, for a slightly worn feel.
For the top and doors I used a deep Jacobean stain. I think the darker stain mixed nicely with the bold paint.
And, this one was a custom order, which will be on its way to its new home soon! I'll share some other painted furniture with you all later this week...
