I'm at it again!

 I know some of you might think why did she paint this. I still like the look of the before but I just needed a change. I know you guys know that feeling:)
The Before...
And the After... 
  I love how this little piece turned out! I used AS Old Ochre on the whole piece and then CoCo on all the trim. Then I sanded and applied both the clear and dark waxes.
  It goes so much better with my mirror too.
 Hummm.....I wonder what's next?
 Thanks so much for stopping by!!
 March 1st is just a day away and blogger is doing away with GFC for all non bloggers. I hope you will follow me along on LINKY. It located on my sidebar right under GFC.

Your little cabinet looks so sweet in the new colour. Sometimes we just need a change, or the colour is no longer working so out comes the paint. The styling with the mirror is very pretty too.
