Holy Guacamole!

We bought this kitchen island from Rachel who bought one of our very favorite buffet/hutch pieces a couple of weeks ago (By the way, Rachel, it looks fantastic in your lovely home!). 

This kitchen island was a really cute piece to begin with, but we wanted to add a little color.  We were unable to remove the hardware on the drawers and on the bottom so we decided to paint over them.  We used Olympic paint from Lowes (Guacamole – hence the title of this post) and sprayed like crazy.  The top had a round stain of some sort so we sanded the top and re-stained it a darker color. 

Now it is updated and adorable! 

Last weekend we also came across a MAJOR FIND at a yard sale.  I forgot to take a before picture (I’m sorry!!) but here is the after! 

As soon as something big sells at the Poet, you will see this one there!  Thanks so much for reading!  I’m headed to Roanoke, Virginia for more fantastic finds!  Happy Tuesday!
