When I refinish a piece of furniture, I do a little research. Slowly but surely, I’ve been educating myself on details like makers names, styles, and construction. It’s exciting when I can narrow down its timeframe to a particular decade and even more so when I can identify the original manufacturer.
This solid wood sideboard has a 1950’s flair to it so I began my research there. From there, I came across the name Haywood Wakefield. The size and scale is similar to other Haywood Wakefield sideboards. The slightly tapered peg legs and rounded edges on the drawers and doors also lead me to believe this could be a Haywood Wakefield sideboard; but, since there are no identifying stamps or plates labeling the piece, I cannot be 100% sure.
Here’s a ‘before’ picture that shows the rounded edges a little more clearly.
The sideboard is looking very sharp in solid black. The large button knobs are original to the piece and now stand out. Very unusual, aren’t they?
The tapered, peg legs are very solid and all of the drawers and cabinets offer a ton of storage.
This 1950’s (possilby Haywood Wakefield) sideboard is now for sale in my Shop.
