I have to admit I’m more accustomed to black or blue but I’m in love with this green and now I see why so many of you love these green tones. Check out my reel to see the before of this orange oak buffet. I’m so happy with the result and I’m loving the new door fronts and more modern base. This buffet has ample storage inside and would work great as a side table, console or coffee bar as well.

**About a 50/50 mix
"Coined in the 1940s, English Country House design is popular as ever as this new century progresses.
It's simple and casual style carries an elegance that one can actually feel at home in and it doesn't take itself too seriously. A mix of antique and vintage furnishings, patterned textiles, rugs, table lamps, flowers, a pinch of modern accessories and the classic hunting artwork - the more the better really. It embraces wear and tear, and it's the furthest thing from minimalism...

"Design for the present, with an awareness of the past.
The previous generations of craftsmen had timeless taste. Color and finish trends come and go, but some designs stand the test of time. This Hepplewhite dresser is one of them. Circa 1940 this piece was modeled after the original designs of English cabinet maker George Hepplewhite from the 18th century. It has an elegant serpentine front along with the lesser found serpentine sides on the top. True to it's English roots, we chose...
"Beautiful antique dresser by the Northern Furniture Company which was started in 1881 in Sheboygan WI. This appears to be a mix of oak (body) and maple (drawer fronts).

The original knobs were missing so I added vintage-look library pulls." - Garage 9 v2

I have been waiting for just the right piece to do a deep emerald green on and once I got this sideboard home, I knew this was the piece!!
When I found this mahogany beauty, the top was in horrible shape and there was no key to unlock the door. The owner said it had been years since they had the key but I knew we could remove the back and figure it out from there and I hoped for a treasure inside. Once we removed the back and got everything opened, all that was in there was a penny and a...

Harvey here needed a full down to the studs demo when we found a bunch of completely rotted wood on all three sides. Thankfully we were able to salvage those fabulous drawers that had an amazing crackled paint from years ago!
We've replaced the wainscoting and painted the body in General Finishes Westminster Green. Scuff sanded the drawer fronts to show some of that amazing lime green underside through it. Added some 4" locking Castor wheels so he doesn...

Westminster Green by @generalfinishes may be my new favorite color!
If you’ve been following my stories you know that I’ve been working on this bar cabinet for a few months as an anniversary gift to my husband.
It’s not often I get to complete a piece we get to keep but when I do I try to make it count!
I did A LOT of sanding on the scroll work and the shelves which probably took the most time out of everything on this piece. I bleached the shelves and the scroll work to remove some of...
