When I was in the midst of setting up and styling the new king size bed in the master I looked over at the mister's armoire, where all his unmentionable and other things are kept, and thought that piece needs a new paint job.
I have been on the hunt for a nice French style armoire that maybe I can paint or even a highboy. I just haven't come across what I want and at the right price yet so until then I will just paint this one to look old and somewhat French.
We bought this piece years ago at Haverty's and it is actually falling part. Hmmm, maybe the paint will hold it together.
I painted this with a pale gray paint by Amy Howard and then used clear and dark waxes and some dry brushing till I got the finish I wanted.
In its original look it was just a basic shiny brown.
I painted it the first time in 2012, but with a semi gloss paint and I never really liked that look.
So after painting, waxing and dry brushing this will do until I find the right one.
If you don't have the exact piece you want just try to transform what you have until you find the right one.
