Painted buffet, moss wreath and Easter mantel

 I finally finished up the Craiglist buffet! It turned out exactly how I wanted it to. It really fills the space nicely.
 I painted it ASCP Old White, distressed it, used some clear wax, added some new green knobs to the drawers and reattached the original pulls on the cabinets.
 I am just tickled with how it turned out!
 Even the chipped piece on the "curly"decoration looks good.
 I painted the inside of the cabinets with a mix of the bottom of the can of Old White and a sample size of Versailles. The perfect pale green.  Give me a few days to "fluff" a bit and I will show the space better.
 I also wanted to show this awesome wreath I bought. I know, I could have made it...
 But when I was visiting my local nursery, I discovered this wreath. As I was taking a closer look so I could make my own, the owner of the store came up and was sharing with me how an older woman makes them to supplement her income. Sooo, I bought one.
 I may still try to make one, I just love the thought of forest and ocean combined! One of the reasons I live where I do, I have forest and ocean :)
I realized I hadn't posted my Easter mantel. How long do you leave your Easter decor out? I think I will slowly start removing mine this week. I am ready for SUMMER! I spent the day outside doing some yard clean up. Made the first jar of suntea of 2012 and am really wanting to get marshmallows to roast tonight. Last night the hubs and I had our Easter dinner on the deck and watched the sun set. We will do that again tonight too! 
I took a walk around the yard and took some pictures for my mom, so mom that post is coming :) 
Thanks for stopping in today!
