nursery furniture redo

I have been working as much as I can to get the new little peanut's room in order before her arrival, which is quickly approaching!  One item that has been on my to-do list since finding out we were expecting was to repaint the above piece of furniture.  I purchased it several years ago right after college at an antique shop because it was incredibly cheap, filled a hole in my apartment, and served a good purpose at the time.  I have never really truly loved it, but have held onto it for some reason, and one day while looking it over, I realized it actually had some nice lines hidden underneath the all over chartreuse camoflauge, and might polish up pretty nicely.  I really don't enjoy painting furniture (or walls) so I procrastinated on this to-do, but finally it just had to happen.  I also wanted to add the gold detail to the edges, and wasn't really looking forward to that little project because I thought it would be a challenge to get it just right.  Enter this little gem - I am crazy about this stuff now.  It comes in a little inexpensive tube, and you just rub it on with your finger or a cloth.  Super easy, and the finish is gorgeous.  It looks really nice and high end, and I can't recommend it enough!  I didn't have to use real gold leaf, or use painter's tape to spray paint it, and you can't ask for much more than that when 36 weeks pregnant and tackling a furniture DIY.  Super easy.  The gold trim plus the glossy black paint and new pulls (which I found at Anthropologie on super sale for $3 each) made for an inexpensive and very satisfying upgrade.
