A Painted Piece



I fell head over heels when I saw this piece by Tracery Interiors. They did a fabulous write up on painting antiques on their blog. They proved that just sometimes it must be done. It's perfection really, as is the rest of their work.

I read the post over the weekend and fell head over heels as well. Hard. That piece is perfection and the green is divine. I've seen so many similar cabinets at a local auction house through the years and now I'm kicking myself for passing them up. Wish I had this kind of vision! Gorgeous!

That green buffet/hutch is just fantastic! I love how the bold color and antique-y feel really add a lot of character to the room. I wish I could find a piece like that!
