Buffet in Basil w/ a Textured Linen Dry Brush

I usually start decorating for Christmas once Thanksgiving is over. 
This year is different. I want to decorate...TODAY.

Since I still have two weeks, I will use my decorations for staging this gorgeous buffet I painted. 

Here is a quick before and after with many, many pictures to follow. 

If you made it through all of those pictures, you're a trooper! 

Now for all the details. 
I used basil by General Finishes for the base and I dry brushed a thin coat of linen. 
I loved the dry brush because it showed so much texture on the wood. 
Plus the linen ties in with the white pulls. 

I sprayed the metal circles on each corner with thin coats of oil rubbed bronze, metallic gold and aged copper spray paint to have them blend with the gold on the pulls. 
I found the pulls at Home Goods.

I am so happy with how great this piece turned out!
