project #3 down- armoir


this is our armoir.
it was the first peice of furniture that the mister and i purchased together.
more than 5 years ago, while we were engaged.
500 buckaroos at a garage sale.
it's beautiful and classic and i love it.
but i needed some more color in my life.

i thought about 

cherry red
...
teal
...
plum
...
but decided on

mustard yellow 

during the process...


ta da! ka-pow!
everyone could use a little more yellow in their life right?
now if only those walls weren't so stark white!
ooooh, and don't get me started on that speaker peeking on the side...
drives me nuts!

It looks fabulous! And so does that room! I understand about the speakers. Thankfully we can't afford any right now! I hate ugly things in a room!

Seriously! Seriously. I'm about to get myself pregnant just so I can have all of that nesting energy back. :o) I LOVE (no way to express how much I LOVE...) that armoir. The color makes it so amazing. I love seeing all of your projects. Keep it up so I've got something to look at. LOL!

Did you just paint straight over the wood? Or did you prep it at all?? I have some painting projects that I'm too afraid to start... but you're motivating me :)
