Almost...but not quite

Well, I'm back home in Brazil, and I'm bummed to say we weren't quite able to wrap up my sister's dining room. It's coming together so beautifully with the glam hot pink velvet on the chairs, but the matching buffet situation gave us fits.

The Ikea chest we planned to hack was out of stock for a few weeks, but we did end up snagging a couple. Then, our paint selection came back more peach than the coral we envision....

However, check out hardware yumminess!DSC_2210
**A few people have asked/commented on the hardware. We bought it from a local antique Co-op that carries reproduction pulls, knobs, etc. It is heavy brass, and stamped "Made in India" if that might help you.

Coming soon....coral glory!

Yes, you must share your hardware source - yummy indeed! And I love the mirror and chest (even if it's not exactly what you were going for - I know how frustrating that can be)!

thats the one they have in black rigth, the one the Good Wife has in her entryway? I really like what you have done Allison, maybe its not the color you wanted or will have at the end, but would look lovely anywhere! LOVE the idea, and saving it for my someday nursery :)

Hi. Just stumbled upon your blog and I would really love to know the paint color on the dining room walls. Love the orange paint on the buffet. Looks wonderful!
