I found this cherry wood armoire at a local thrift store on Sunday afternoon during "power hour." Power hour meant everything in the store was 50% off! WHAT?!#@*&^%? I had been in search of an armoire that I can antique. And it just so happened it was there in the midst of it all....calling out my name. Perfect. Not too big. Not too small. And will fit adorably in my little dressing room/spare room. =)
So I went at it! I went to the store and picked me up some Antique White paint, a couple different sized paint brushes, and some sand paper. I removed all the handles and wiped it down so it was fresh and clean. Shhh, dont tell anyone but I skipped the whole sand papering first part of this whole gig. I went straight to painting! hehe!
After the second coat, it was a pasty cream color. I went ahead and put the handles back on, but I wasnt done yet! I was looking more for an antique look. So this is where the sand paper comes in! And I went to sandin'!
P.S. Next time, I will sand before hand! I thought I was being smooth by skipping a step, but really it needed to be done first! Oh well. Something tells me this wont be the first furniture project I take on!
