Chloe's New PIece

Last night, I painted a piece of furniture that was given to me by a friend. I forgot to take a before picture, but you can see part of it here. You cannot really tell, but the piece needed a fresh coat of paint. It did not look bad, but it did not look fresh. The rest of Chloe's room looks so fresh that I wanted to update it.

It is hard to tell in the pictures below, but I painted it a light green. The bedding and decor is pink and green. While there are some pink accents, I don't have much green. She already has a lot of white pieces, so I wanted to add some color!

I have to admit: when I buy paint on a whim, I NEVER get the correct color. But, for the first time ever, I did. Yay! I think I have painted enough that I am starting to see "the color behind the color" (which colors are hard to detect but you can pick up on in the different lighting, etc).
Decorating doesn't come naturally, so I am excited to see I am progressing!

Anyway, back to the furniture....here is the after (I will put the pink and white baskets back on it, but I am just making sure its totally dry!):

The green is subtle but so fun. I changed out the hardware. Chloe is out of town right now, but when she gets back, I think she will love it!
