An English Country Queen Anne style (also known as "Queen Anne" and "Royal") pine sideboard with three drawers and straight apron style with cutouts. A period of early American and English furniture design from the late to early 18th Century. Often called "The American School Cabin" due to its popularity amongst American settlers.
Sideboards were not a traditional part of furniture during this time. They were commonly placed next to dining room tables and were used for storage, much like today. Before you rush out to purchase your sideboard there are some things you should know.
Pine is one of the strongest and most beautiful woods available today. Although it is rare in nature, modern day sideboards are made from plywood and MDF (medium density fiberboard) that are typically found in high-end furniture stores. Sideboards will usually be found in the dining room, but can also be found in bedroom closets and for outdoor pieces such as benches and barbeque grills.
The classic styling of a solid pine sideboard with graceful grace and classic proportions is timeless. It is commonly associated with Queen Anne and cottage style architecture. The graceful lines and simple design of these sideboards make them ideal for small and large rooms alike. Solid wood sideboards can be found in both freestanding and wall-mounted models. All styles share a similar look and feel and are great for adding some sophistication to a more formal environment.
Solid pine sideboards are usually freestanding units measuring anywhere from two to four feet long and up. When decorating a larger room you can choose to add a large piece of wood paneling behind the sideboard, or you could leave the paneling unmaintained. Paneling adds a touch of texture and depth to a solid board and can be a great decor piece in its own right. If the existing piece of furniture you are using is made from solid wood and you would like to use a more distressed texture on your sideboards, then you would want to paint each piece according to the style you are going for.
The distressed or painted finish is available in either a soft or a hard varnish depending on your preference. If you are unsure which type of finish would best suite your needs, I would suggest visiting a furniture store to take a look around. They have experienced staff who can help you select the perfect look. There are several different types of pine available, including; Spanish cedar, red maple, white, and alder. Each wood has it's own unique personality and characteristics.
Choosing the right pine sideboard is essential if you are to create a look that complements the rest of your existing furniture. Solid pine sideboards are a timeless addition to any home and should be considered an investment. As they are a solid, they will not date. Pine can also withstand a lot of use and abuse, which makes it an ideal wood for sideboards. This is especially true if the furniture pieces in your home are regularly used such as a dining room set.
As you can see from the above information, there are many advantages to purchasing a pine sideboard over other styles of solid pine furniture. The unique and intricate grain patterns are top notch. They will increase the value of your home and will certainly increase the style of the room in which they are placed. Pine sideboards can be purchased at most furniture stores, however online stores usually have a better selection and more competitive prices.
As with any type of furniture, you need to make sure that you are purchasing from a trustworthy supplier. The best way to make sure that you are buying top quality pine sideboards is to ask the supplier to send you some photos of their work. Also, do your homework and make sure that you are only purchasing furniture that has been made using high quality materials. Some suppliers will use cheap materials, but they will usually put this right on the side of the piece of furniture where you are seeing it.

If you are looking for a pine sideboard, then you should definitely check out some of these consumer-written reviews. By reading through several of these reviews, you will have a better idea of what to expect. It is important to be patient and make sure that you are buying a sideboard that will fit in with the rest of your room.
