|Here is the new guest room in all of it's Antique White glory! I am in love with the new color in here. Though I liked the cottage blue that use to be in here Antique White makes the space so much brighter and airy. The red headboard is out in the garage waiting for it's transformation. I can not decide if I want to strip it or go the easy route and put some Kiltz over it all. With the room being painted I can now focus on the fun part which is adding all the things I have been purchasing over the last few months for this space! The largest of those purchases is over there in the corner. Yep, that is the armoire that The Hubster bought me back in August for our anniversary. It is finally completed and so happy to be in it's new space! Come on and take a closer look.|
|I used clear wax and then dark wax to add definition to the piece. It was the first large piece that I have ever waxed and honestly next time I will do less dark.|
|I just love the curvy lines this piece has!|
|I kept the original hardware because honestly anything else would have taken away from the piece. I did however use some Old White on the hardware and then sanded a tad off to make them look old and worn.|
|I lined the drawers with this beautiful swirly paper but I am debating on whether or not to replace it with old book pages or script paper. Not sure though.|
So there have it! The whole reason the guest bedroom was repainted was just for this armoire!:) I am tickled with how it turned out. I have never painted a piece as large as this before so it was a little intimidating. Thankfully all went well though.
Hope all is grand and thanx for stopping by!
