I am SO freaking excited about how this piece turned out! I have been helping my good friend and neighbor do some accessory and furniture placement tweaking in her home. She was doing a re-vamp of her jewelry storage system and offered me her old oak armoire. I tried to convince her to keep it an just paint it since it has such nice lines. But she is a busy gal and found herself a new smaller one. I was SO excited to get this from her and start slapping paint on it!
(excuse my poopy iPhone photo!)
I couldn't take the hardware off because of the velvet lining inside. Painting around all that was a super-pain!
I just LOVE how she turned out! I am hoping Cheri does not want her back after she sees how gorg' she is now!
I really like the sway on those legs - they remind me of my dog (he is a basset/beagle mix).
I need to do a little touch-up sanding underneath the top! (That will probably never happen! You know how lazy I am!)
I painted this in Annie Sloan Florence and added a coat of clear wax. Then I sandpaper distressed it and added
another coat of clear and dark wax mixed together to deepen the distressing and the color.
that our two dogs don't ruin my nice duvet! So spoiled!
Hope everyone has a great week!
