I've had an old curio cabinet that my Dad gave me sitting in the garage for months.  One day it just hit me that it would make an amazing accessory station!  Here is the nasty before - one of the sides of glass broke so I just took them all out.
I used Ocean Depths for this:
I love this color!  I sanded (and by sanded I mean rubbed my sanding block over a few spots) then cleaned the cabinet.  The paint went on beautifully!  I was going to do multiple coats then distress, but I loved how the wood peeked out from under just one coat of paint.
After it dried I sanded the entire piece (for real this time) and glued on some wood knobs I bought at Hobby Lobby and painted gold.
Now I have an awesome accessory station!
I replaced the side glass with thin wood I got at Lowes and placed chicken wire on the front.
On the inside I have my winter hats and scarves stored.
Look at the details of this piece - I LOVE the final color!!

You may have noticed the background behind my accessory stand - I primarily used Dandelion and used one splash of Lily Green just for fun!
I loved Mandi's Stamped Triangle Tribal Wall and wanted to do my own spin on it!
I cut a triangle piece from some wood I had lying around and used it as a stencil.  The backdrop is just a full size flat sheet from Target - I think it was $11.
I painted my Dandelion paint directly on the stencil then pressed it on the sheet.

Because I was stenciling on my driveway I had to lay down cardboard.  The uneven surface caused my stencil to leave irregular patterns - I love the look it provides!!
I used some wood to make a fake stage and taped up my backdrop behind it.
Now I have a fun little area where I can photograph my furniture projects (although it would be so much better if I had some extra daylight!!)
I had so much fun working on these projects!  I really loved my paint and can't wait to try it on something else!!
