Finally!

My corner piece is done!

If you remember, I decided to paint it because I wanted to brighten up my living room and since, I can't paint the walls, I thought this was an easy solution!

So, here's the before. . .

and here's the after!

I have to say that I truly love it and it brightens up that space so much!!



I ordered some knobs from Anthropologie but they haven't come in yet, so I bought a few "birdcage" knobs from Lowe's until the others come in.

It's late in the evening so, I couldn't get a great pic but these give you the basic idea.

So, what do you think?

I'm thinking it looks much, much better and definitely accomplishes what I wanted to do! : )

It was beautiful before too but I can see how it kind of blended in.

It looks so much better! Wood on wood on wood looked very dark and the white makes this piece pop and brightens that corner. Good choice!
