Because woodtones bum me out

I picked this up pretty little piece from Craigslist for $25 this weekend. Its about five feet tall and twice as heavy as what I should be lifting ;)

I'm not a large fan of the wicker drawer fronts and railroad top but love the rest of the lines.
I want to spray paint the front in white so I won't lose the pretty detail on the leather and grommets.
I'm thinking of printing this in a HUGE size and then cutting down the pieces into small squares to cover the wicker.

As to the rest of the wood? I'm picturing SILVER LEAF because its affordable, pretty and a challenge I haven't met yet.

Wish me luck!

Wow, that is such a cute piece. Can't wait to see it finished. What will you be using it for? I myself love the top the way it is, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder :-)
