*Holly Paint*

So it has been awhile since I posted anything, but I have been working on ton's of projects!

A friend of mine needed an Entertainment Center for his new flat-screen t.v.  and asked me to do something with clean lines but with an aged look.  I found this buffet and knew it could work with a few changes.
Though...I love the original piece and so it was hard  for me to change the design.
It would of been Gorgeous with just a little paint!

But anyways...

Here is the finished piece
Doors = Gone!
Feet = Gone!
Handles = Replaced!
Shelf = Added!

I first lightly painted on a light green color (the color of his walls) and then painted black on top and distressed.  Then glazed with thinned down black paint to even everything out. Though the green is hard to see in the picture it is green showing through on the distressed edges.

This is totally different from anything I normally do...but every guy that has seen this piece LOVES IT! 
So I guess it is perfect for the male population!!
