Not to be outdone by the shoes, the furniture demanded some teal treatment.
Years ago, I would have been scandalized by painting wood (Nicole Curtis may indeed be shaking her head at me right now). But this is an old and battered piece, purchased at a Rose Gallery auction years ago. It's not an heirloom, but it does have some nice features, and I think the teal actually plays them up and gives it new life. I love how this buffet looks now, and smile at it everyday.
(plus the paint was a free sample at Ace Hardware last weekend, so the whole upgrade cost me nothing!)
