Little Green Cabinet PB/Knock Off

While out thrifting I stumbled on this little cabinet




It had great detail! It was hidden under that dark wood!
It fit in the trunk of my car, so off I went!
When I got home I discovered
it was full of spider... webs and little egg sacks....
and it certainly didn't smell good

While cleaning it.. I found the key for it!
I really didn't have much of a vision for it..



Until I got the new Potty Barn catalog in the mail...

Source: Pottery Barn

 I had some left over paint from a project for my daughters room.


Look at the detail now...




My Sister in law ALL the way in South Florida now owns this piece in her home!

This was a fun piece to work on, I am glad I was able to find it and give it a new life!
