We purchased the Grevback from Ikea for our dining room as a liquor cabinet. Painting a veneer is no fun. I'm still worried about scuff marks, we will just have to be careful. To get the finish we wanted we sanded, primed, under-painted in brown, top coat was dry brushed in green. The inside we painted flat yellow over the primer. Oh yes, and an Anthro knob to finish it off. Makes me want to drink more...could be a problem.
