French Armoire

I bought this big armoire from a friend and she had started painting it (months ago) a dark grey so I continued to paint it the same color.  I dry brushed it with Behr (stonewashed) and used (antique tin) for the dark grey underneath.  I added a damask stencil to the front squares and put wall paper on the inside to add some character and give it some sophistication. 


(It took all I had to shove this behemoth out of the garage so I could take a picture)

  1. Hi,
    Nice blog. I would really like to find an armoire like the one you have shown.The armoires with the lozenge panel designs are my favourite. Thanks for putting up so many good pictures. I have not been able to see one up close before.
    Keep up the good work.

  2. Spectacular! Love it, and your good friend, for selling it to you!
