This was not an expensive piece since it came from Rooms To Go many years ago so I figured why not paint it.
Here a some shots of the finish.
New knobs from Hobby Lobby.
Oh, and the box on top. Yes, I transformed that, too and will share it in another post on how.
This armoire was painted first with Old Violet and then dry brushed with Old White. I then mixed Chateau Gray and the Old Violet and water to make a muddy looking gray green and that was dry brushed on in places and smeared with my fingers. I then heavily sanded following with clear and brown waxes. Then after not liking the look I brushed more of the Chateau Gray/Old Violet/water mix on in more places to tone down the color and shine.
It goes so much better in the room now. Mr. Savvy likes it which was a surprise. I was afraid he may not have been pleased with me painting it. For some reason men seem to prefer stained wood. He has learned not to be surprised to come home and find a piece painted. In fact, today I painted his nightstand.
