At first, when I heard that emerald was the “Color of the Year” for 2013, I was all, “meh.” Big whoop. But then my eyeballs got a hold of the following resplendently emerald makeovers, and now I’m like “Emerald, heck yeah!” Maybe you will feel the same. Let’s find out:
Case in point: this boring old hutch. And it was not in great shape either. How
could regular wear and tear inflict so much damage on a hutch? Were
these people getting out their fine china with shovels or something? No
matter, because now it’s a genuine gem. And those handles! Swoonville.

Kelly at A Swell Place To Dwell went green to get green with this dresser she planned to sell. But she didn’t stop at green, she went for the gold too. She gilded the edges of the frame with liquid gold leaf, along with the handles, though she didn’t get to enjoy this beauty for long. It sold in a snap!
I’m already in love with this emerald and gold relationship, but what if we spiced things up with a little peacock blue? And/or actual peacocks? Dionne at The Turquoise Iris did exactly that with this old credenza, and it turned out stunning. I could squeal like a peacock, I love it so much. Not really, have you ever heard the sound a peacock makes? TERRIFYING.
And last but not least, Pam at Simple Details took this outdated dumpster-dive dresser and turned it on it’s side, literally and figuratively. She also she turned some basic IKEA handles on their side, which gives it an entirely new look. So genius! So modern! So chic!
