Crystal from The Driftwood Home used Woodland and Hemp Oil to give this pretty cabinet the moody makeover it deserves!

This winter, I have been very drawn to painting with greens. It could be that I’m longing for spring to get here quickly, or that greens are the new “moody” colors.

I had a completely different vision for this piece when I first picked it up. It has a sister, however the drawer on that one is warped so it will have to be removed and sold as an open-faced cabinet. This one however was perfect the way it was and I really fell in love with the carved leaf handle on the top drawer.

I sprayed two coats of Country Chic Paint’s Limited Edition color “Woodland” on this oversize cabinet. I love this color because it’s a very muted olive green with gray undertones. I think this is probably one of the most complex and neutral greens I have come across in a long time.

I lightly distressed it around the edges and highlights to give it a worn appearance and sealed with clear wax. This finish previously had a wax finish on it, so I wanted to ensure maximum durability by not mixing finishes. I also gave the interior a coat of Hemp Oil to keep it protected and the paint looking fresh. It’s such a cool piece with its designs and its size. It’s large enough to be a small bathroom vanity, liquor cabinet, coffee bar, printer station…the possibilities are endless.

I love that this color reminds me of a cabin on a lake house and it’s got so much character, I can see it being a huge hit with both men and women. This is probably one of the best greens around and I can see this on so many gorgeous pieces of furniture and cabinetry with different styles.
