Spruce up a Buffet~*~*

Before:

After:


I have been sprucing up my kitchen! I decided to redo my buffet. Now, I have been putting this off for a few years. I purchased it used and the aged green finish was really pretty nice, but it always seemed so drab! Well, I finally took the leap! I was inspired by Cindy's My Romantic home! I just love her blog! So, I gave the buffet a good sanding, ordered "Rose" appliques from Doityourselfchic.com and wood-glued them on. A little primer, a lot of paint and tah dah! I still havent decided what kind of knobs to put on. So, if anyone has any ideas.....Let me know!
Oh, and the drab is gone! The white really brightens up the place!

Wow, now this bracelet is "BLING"! I just loved it!

The transformation is just beautiful! You have inspired me to paint over a piece that I have been so undecided about changing - but after seeing your fabulous results, I am going to finally do it.

This is so beautiful!! (Of course I am a day late and a dollar short on this so disregard if you have already done the knobs.)I am thinking those crystal (look like crystal anyway) knobs would be nice. I am sure whatever you do or have done will be wonderful.
