Peacock Blue Server

I am in love with this gorgeous shade of blue. I call it Peacock Blue, it is actually Cathedral by Behr. This piece is a a true antique. I have to admit I felt a bit guilty putting the paint on. Here is the before picture~
There was quite a bit of damage to the finish as well as some pretty serious scratches on the top. The beautiful original hardware stole my heart, even the keyhole covers and castors. Nothing missing! That is a rare find on its own. I wanted a simple finish to showcase all of that hardware. I sanded, primed and painted with Behr "Cathedral", the perfect peacock blue, and finished with a coat of Lacquer. After some light distressing and some pretty fabric to line the drawers her she is~

 Did I mention that hardware?
