I didn't take any :( You know the moment when you start painting a piece of furniture and realize only after taking it completely apart or sanding it down, that you forgot to take a before pic? Due to my excitement over getting started on the thing, I just forgot completely!!! So I need you to use your imagination on this one.
Please picture a very ugly armoire with...
*cloth covered doors (with 3 layers of fabric on them)
*terrible patina style paint job
*back panel coming off the armoire
*and a price tag of $50 for the beast
*a husband asking me why I'm buying it because it's truly ugly and he can't imagine it any other way
This is a photo of the finished armoire in the shop at Amity Pottery.
I'm still staging things and getting things ready for the grand opening.
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint on this piece... "Old White" on the outside and "Coco" under the distressing and on the inside of the armoire.
Before painting a piece of furniture, I visualize it in my own home. I do not enjoy refinishing pieces unless I have a certain place for them and a plan for them. I sometimes HATE to give things up and this was definitely one of those times. If it doesn't sell, I have the perfect place for it upstairs. My husband fell in love with this piece too and didn't want me to sell it. I love it when that happens. It is for sale... by the way... at Amity Pottery.
