A Very Green Chest

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a great summer so far!  I feel like the lamest blogger ever since I haven't posted anything in months!  I've been busy getting settled in Bend and working full time.  There's so much to do outdoors here, that I rarely want to be at home working on projects.  But, over the last few weeks I've had a chance to work on a chest of drawers that I bought last summer at a garage sale.  It's been living in my grandparent's shop for the past year.  Here it is before the transformation.  

I had a hard time deciding what to do with it, so I was browsing other people's projects on Pinterest and came across a chest of drawers painted a really pretty, but BOLD shade of green called "Happy Camper" by Behr.  I decided to be daring and go for it.  I wanted it to sit in my very small entry (if you can even call it an entry - it's more of an open wall next to my kitchen) so it needed to work with my living room decor.  I plan on using it to store craft supplies since I'm pretty limited on storage space in this tiny cozy apartment.  

I spray painted the handles Oil Rubbed Bronze, painted the dresser Happy Camper green, and did a black glaze over the top to darken it a bit.  It is VERY green.  I do like it, but I'm not sure it will live with me forever.  I'll probably end up selling it or giving it away when I move to another place in the fall.  

 PS...I get to go meet my new nephew this weekend!!  Look at his face!  Isn't he adorable?!  Love these two so much!
