Painted Buffet for Cabin

I scooped up this small buffet from my sister when she got a new dining room set. Originally, it was dark wood with gold handles. When I first brought it home, Mr. Cabin looked at me like I was nuts when I said it was going to the cabin. "Trust me I said. All it needs is a little paint." He didn't look too convinced, but I went on with my plan undaunted.
I painted it red as you can see. Then I went back and painted the dentil molding pieces white and blue. It's such a great pop of color against the log walls. Plus it fits perfectly behind the front door.
However, the reason why I am really loving it now... extra storage! Gotta love that.
