Hutch/Buffet Painted

I finally painted the Buffet/Hutch!!

Here's what it used to look like. The color was inspired by the green Domino book and one of Barbara's pieces (it's the green hutch on the portfolio page). I find myself being drawn to this green lately... wonder if I'm over all that grey yet?!

I'm such a huge fan of Knack Studios and would consider moving to South Carolina to work for food & lodging just to be able to wash Barbara's paint brushes or cut sandpaper pieces. She is the master of jazzing up furniture and has given me so much inspiration... So in her honor, I'm officially naming this Buffet/Hutch - BB (bee-bee) for Barbara Blair.
