After and Before

I love looking at photos that feature the transformation of a piece of furniture that is nice but not particularly eye-catching. This is my newest favorite color, 3 parts Aubusson Blue to 1 part Antibes Green. I showed it in the previous post, but did not show how it was originally.
I created a green from Antibes Green, Arles, and Chateau Grey. I loved the color and will use it on a piece for Spring, but this piece was meant for that blue jewel-tone. As Annie says, a piece will tell you what it wants to be if you give it time just to evolve. I had this piece for a few months and just kept staring at it thinking about the color.
This is the back.
This is the side. It really has great lines and I love the curves as well as the straight legs. I painted the inside two drawers in Emile so it is a nice surprise when you open the drawer!
