Weekend Warrior - Painted Console

I'm helping my mother in law get her house all spruced up! One of the things I wanted to do was fix up this killer consloe she had, that was in need of a major makeover.. It was white washed with broken knobs.

BEFORE: I almost forgot to take a before shot.. Here's one when I first started..



So we went to Home Depot to find the perfect shade of green, and found one in Martha Stewarts new line called Timothy Hay, and then headed to Anthropologie to find cute knobs!

Aren't these to die for?! They can be found here and here



Next, I rolled on two coats of paint and used a foam brush to fill in all the crevices on the bottom, I also gave the drawers a couple fresh coats of white paint. I let that fully dry and added Polycrylic to give it that shine and duarability.

Heres the AFTER:















Didn't it turn out sooo cute?! I don't know whos more excited.. Me or my mother in law!
