So excited about this DIY!!


Hey everyone, hope you had a nice weekend!
We had a wonderful time celebrating all the awesome fathers in our family with
 brunch at my parent's. It was a 99 degree scorcher in Denver, lounging and switching
 between golf and a car auction were the activities of choice (by the men)!

Do you remember this inspiration photo for the One Room Challenge Great Room
I just completed? I mentioned how much I LOVED the $$$ Saville cabinet from
 Ebanista. I hadn't thought about it, but a few of you encouraged me to DIY one. 
Well...the perfect cabinet popped up on Craigslist!          
  

If you use your imagination you can see how I could come up with something
similar, right?   



Here are some closeups of the painted detail.
  I'm hoping I can replicate the hand painted appearance of the 22K gold they use! 




Keep your fingers crossed for me, and I'll keep you updated.
