We're absolutely smitten with this two-toned Emerald Midcentury stunner by Cassie at Primitive & Proper! "I decided playing it safe is for sissies. And I am no sissy.

Take a look at this absolutely gorgeous buffet by Helen of Picked & Painted. "I used Basil by General Finishes for the base and I dry brushed a thin coat of Linen.
