Spring Green!!!

Oh am I coming out of my little blue gray shell or what? Ya ready for a little Spring Green??? I wasn't but the woman who wanted these painted was. Once I saw her two inspiration pics though I was sold. One I recognized right away....a Chrissie piece,  The other, dubbed The Appletini by Monica @ Decorating Insanity. How is that for awesome inspiration! Here's the set she wanted painted which I found on CL only 5 minutes from the train station I was dropping my son off at on his way back to college after Spring break.
                                                                           
   Painted BM Paradise Hills Green, glazed in Espresso and the tops were stained English Chestnut. I was super careful when sanding down the tops because the veneer on these was very thin. One false move and no stained tops for you, ha! Seriously though, I probably would have cried if I went through the veneer.

I like this a lot! Visiting from Miss Mustard Seed.

Did you use Aura paint? or the regular. I like BM paint very much.
