Tracy had been obsessively hunting for ANYTHING from the Mid-Century Brasilia line by Broyhill for years, so when she finally came across this piece for only $80, she knew she had to have it. The only problem was that it was covered in disgusting (what she calls) “government issue” green paint.

It took her a year, but Tracy finally mustered up the courage (and space) to begin the project. Worth the wait!

Tracy says:

Countless hours were spent sanding, chemically stripping, and mentally cursing the person who so thoroughly primed and painted this piece green. The end result is something I couldn’t be more proud of! Now I’m able to enjoy this iconic mid century masterpiece in my home every day.

Thank you Tracy!
