Shine Bright Like an Emerald- and a Giveaway!

It’s done! The $70 buffet we purchased off Craigslist is finally done!!  This post probably has way too many photos, but I hope you enjoy them!!

It might be my favorite redo to date.  It wasn’t all candy and roses though….there was a ton of elbow grease involved.   But, it was all worth it.

The color we chose is Behr’s Green Grass.  I’ll have a post on the tutorial soon.  It turned out to be the exact color I had in mind.

The prints in the frames are temporary….the frames won’t change, but I’ve got some DIY art simmering on the brain.  I haven’t finished styling it yet, but I was so eager to show you guys her makeover thus far!

I love the view walking down the hallway.

The knobs are from D. Lawless Hardware–who by the way just started a Pinterest account!  I won a $50 giftcard (whoop whoop!) from Trina so it came in super handy and the timing couldn’t have been better for this piece!  I purchased a few to choose from, and landed on these!

For the top drawer:

Diamond Cut Clear Acrylic Knob – Large Three Ring Base – Brass Plated 1-3/8″

Here are some other sweet glass knobs if you’re interested.

It was John’s idea to put 4 of these dangly Octagonal Polished Brass Drop pulls on the bottom drawer.  Because four is better than two. ;)

To remind you of our starting point:

Now she shines bright like an diamond emerald.  Our front room is coming together beautifully, slowly but surely!

Now on to EVEN MORE juicy stuff!  D. Lawless reached out to me about doing a giveaway so I emailed Trina to get her take.  You know, because I’m not trying to be a giveaway copycat. ;)

Up for grabs are TWO $50 gift cards to D. Lawless Hardware!!!  Yes, two lucky people will get a $50 gift card.  You can get a lot for that because their prices are amazing.  It’s super easy to use (I know from experience) AND you can use your gift card to pay for the shipping cost.  It doesn’t get much better.

    I LOVE it! I’m guessing in the tutorial you will explain how you made it looks sort of aged with the weathering look of the green? Looks like you added some brown or something in there?

  16. I thought I commented but I clearly forgot to hit the submit button (oops!). Anyway… I love the green and how it all turned out – it’s absolutely beautiful! I think those pulls are my favorite (I pinned them!).

  17. JUST BEAUTIFUL!!! I am glad you were a winner because they topped off that piece perfectlyl!!

  21. This buffet looks amazeballs. It’s inspiring to see what you can make from something that, originally, didn’t look so hot!

  22. Love it! Very happy piece!

  23. It looks really great! I am still plugging away at my little emeralds. I am hoping to finish before St. Patrick’s Day – seems appropriate. The drawer pulls/handles on your Craigslist find are gorgeous!

  24. And it’s very very pretty – so I pinned it too. :)

  25. Pinned! This is freaking beautiful Whitney! I have an old dresser hanging around that I have been hemming and hawing over what color to paint it and you may have won me over with this emerald shade. It’s just gorgeous and such a pop of color looking down your hallway!!

  26. It turned out awwwwesooome!
    Smart idea on the 4 dangles… it makes it shine like a diamond (ha ha ha I hate that song but now it will be in my head all day). Thanks Whit

  27. Yay for you! It turned out awesome, Whitney. Green goodness. (and gee thanks, for getting that lovely diamond song stuck in my head. ha!)

  28. Mmmmmm … Candy and roses … And of course 4 is better than 2! Good work, guys! It looks great!

  29. It looks sooo good!! It’s the perfect colour! I love the hardware you chose too!
