Wow Us Wednesdays #6

3.16.2011

It's that time again. Can you believe it? The weeks are just zipping by. I have several projects going on right now and just have a few pictures of the latest victim piece. I told you I am trying to lighten and brighten around here so this is the new look of my husband's armoire.  I gave you a tiny peek the other day and after three coats of Behr paint with primer it is finished except I may distress it.



I painted it the same color as the table by the bed. It is called cotton knit by Behr. 


For those who are new around here the cover you see in the left corner is Miss Bailey's crate with the burlap crate cover I made here and here. I'm not a seamstress, but love how it turned out.


Cold and rainy out today so these are the best pictures I could get.

I will share the new look in the bedroom soon.

Now I want you to Wow us!


Party Guidelines:
Please link your intended post URL and not your whole blog.
You must add a link back to the party in your post or my party button from my sidebar.
If you find your link deleted then there wasn't a link back to the party. Just add the link and try again.
The only way others can find the party is if you have the link or button in your post. Just saying joining these parties here does not work either. If you are new here I hope you will become a follower.
Try to visit at least a couple of links. You will probably find some great blogs to follow.
I hope you will check and see if you have word verification turned on for your comments. If you do please turn it off. You will get more comments without that on.

  1. I'm loving the armoire! The white is a really nice shade and it looks really striking with the wall color. Well done!

  4. Love the armoire! The contrast with the wall looks great.

    Hope you don't mind that I linked up the Niagara Falls pics. I think it has a Wow factor, but if it doesn't fit the criteria, my feelings will not be hurt if it's you need to delete it. It was a spur of the moment thought.

    Hugs, Honey

  5. Looks great Kim! Looking forward to seeing the other changes.

    I am in the midst of painting a bed for the lake. Going there Friday and hopefully finish the larger guest room in time for next Wed. This is iffy because some of our G'kiddos will be there till Sunday and they definitely take priority.

  7. I love the look of your bedroom! It's kind of funny that the paint color is cotton knit, since the detailing on the front of the armoire reminds me a bit of a cable-knit sweater...
    Thank you for hosting the party. :)

  14. Kim, pleeeeease come live at my house for about a month! I need your courage and encouragement to get me to paint some furniture! The armoire looks so pretty, but then, everything you paint looks wonderful. Thank you for hosting. laurie

  16. Kim the armoire looks so pretty. I lvoe that shade of white. I'm joining the party this week even though I don't have much wow. Thanks for hosting.

  17. Kim, you inspire me every day. I looked at an antique dresser today and thought for the first time "I can do this!" I am going back to purchase it and use your tutorial to paint it. I realized things are too "matchy-matchy" in my bedroom and it needs to be lightened up. You really should consider opening a small business for refinished pieces.

  26. What's inside those doors of the armoire? On the front? Looks a little different than the rest. I'm on the laptop. Can't see detail as well.

  27. WOW! I love the armoire. YOur walls and mine are just about the same color. I love this soft brown!!!!
    Kim, is the front of the armoire ratan? It looks textured. My daughter has a ratan front armoire she is thinking about painting. Yours looks lovely.
    I will have an entry next week. I am working on a sofa table. I am having so much fun!
    Now off to see the other WOW'S.

  33. Love the armoire Kim and the color is so warm and cozy. I have a pine armoire in my family room that's been crying for a paint job. If I find the time, I'll do something similar to yours.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Such a soothing look. Those chocolate brown walls (looks like) and creamy paint are just delicious together. I love my dark wood but I could sure get into the white and cream painted pieces as well.

    I'm joining your party for the first time today Kim!

  41. Pretty!
    Where do you get all your energy? Can I have some?
    I have some serious painting to do around here...not armoires, but walls.
    I just decorated for Spring, and took pictures and declared that the front rooms will not be photographed again while they are red.
    They are being painted contract-on-the-house khaki :)
    So, thank you for the party and the painting inspiration, Kim!

  53. Love how the armoire turned out!! It looks like a new piece of furniture (I mean in a good way - ha!)I think it makes your shutters stand out more with the contrast of the white against the brown. I bet your room feels bigger now too!
