a little re-do required!

This is the green bureau done over.  It is in versaille green.  I got rid of the dark wax and the twine pulls. just was not feelin it!  the wax made the piece look messy and the handles were creative but were just too small and not "strong" enough for the piece.  I did the hardware and the trim in "old ochre"

 This is the original hardware which was brass.  it has a clean and simple look now.  I have never used the "old ochre" before but it is a pretty color. 

This is the way it did look.  I like the clean version so much better!

small bookshelf for bathroom?

This is a very sweet little bookshelf, again from a yard sale! 
I painted it for my niece.  maybe her bathroom as they don't have storage.  Graphite on the outside, duck egg blue inside.  I like the way it turned out.  I hope my niece does too!~   
I just re-painted the bureau in my last post. was not happy with the way that turned out.  will post new pic soon.  busy these days!
