The highly polished lacquered finish gives this cabinet a sleek look and brings out the depth of the red paint. This long sideboard with three drawers and open shelving below is also painted inside the drawers and shelves and finished on all four sides. Where the paint had been worn away, dark reds and black as well as the natural pine are visible. As it is "free-standing," it would make a great kitchen island, sideboard as well as a console table. Please take a moment to enlarge the photos and examine the piece up close especially the red lacquered finish.
