Who'd have thought that a color could be so motivating and fun!

The funny thing is that this perfect pair of paint and piece of furniture came together unexpectedly and yet coincidentally went together perfectly! hahaha, if that makes any sense to you guys? the fact that it does to me wellll it just does and you'll see why!
To be honest what pushed me to combine this piece with this perfect mint green color even more so was the inspiration that came from {here}, I've been obsessed with Christy's beverage station for like ever!

And when I saw this pretty color from Country Chic Paint, I couldn't pass it up.
We've been working on creating a sort of sanctuary for our outdoor patio, we love spending time outdoors.  We're only scratching the surface by making cosmetic upgrades as much as I'd like to tear it all up and start over, that's just not in the budget, but much more on that very soon.
Since the beginning of Spring I had been searching Craigslist for a piece that would serve as anbeverage station/potting table for our outdoor space.  I found throughout the web that quite a few changing tables have been turned beverage stations or bar carts if you will and it inspired me to look further than the norm.
Here is a pic of what it looked like before, I meant to take a photo of it myself, but I didn't so I here's one I managed to track down from Pottery Barn.
It was worth the homework of finding this piece, let me know your thoughts and for more after pics visit the blog!
