An old sideboard gets restored

This is an antique sideboard that has been in my family for many years. Mother had it hidden in a spare room. Now we actually use it. My daddy had purchased it many years ago, and it was in need of some restoring. With some sand paper and custom color stain, now this old sideboard is much prettier. Even though it is very old, it is very sturdy and well-made. There are two drawers in the front that are perfect for storing silverware. We think the wood is maple. To see the after photo, follow the link below my signature.

Here is an after photo of the old sideboard:
Daddy had bought this from a neighbor, who had it in her kitchen. We think that years ago, there was a wood hutch that sat on top of the sideboard. This was a fun and useful project that I worked on when my health was better. Mother was surprised that this old item turned into a really nice and useful piece of furniture once again. The top is stained in a special orange wood stain, and the whole sideboard has 3 coats of clear protective finish.
