The Green Buffet

I adore a good before and after and I loved this buffet from the minute i saw it.  I considered painting it white for a second until I remembered that I don't paint with white.  I use color.  Lots of color. 

Retique It provided me with all the products I wanted to use to create a freshly painted look.  

I chose viridian, jade and seven seas so I could create a grassy green look.  

 

It felt right to add just a tiny bit of copper metallics on the edges and to keep the original hardware.  This is a piece of furniture I could keep in my own house.
