Spring is in the air~

So, it's really not.  A girl can dream though right?! :)

This little cutie is a smokers cabinet that I decided to splash some real spring color on.  The period this cabinet comes from is that wonderful 1940's waterfall.  There is enough of this quality built furniture for everyone in America to have at least one piece.  Though the aesthetic isn't something I'm a big fan of. why not paint it?!

The base color is a mix of Antibes, Cream, and Arles.  It came out in this bright green apple-ie color and I just love it!  Nothing says spring like a nice bright cherry green!  Using a dry brush technique, Cream emphasizes the details easily without too much effort.  As the finishing touch, I painted the pull in Cream, gave the entire piece a light distressing and a hand rubbed clear wax finish.

It's just the splash of bright color we need here in Northern Illinois where it's 41 one day and 10 the next!  Hope your enjoying a little bit of sunshine today!  If not, paint yourself some! :)
Enjoy~
