Last Project of 2013

From My Front Porch To Yours
Can you guess the one thing in this space that was bugging the heck out of me? If you guessed the t.v. armoire you would be right.

Here it is back in the fall after I made over our living room. It desperately was screaming for a make over itself but there was always just too much else going on. I put it at the top of my 2014 list.

A week before Christmas I was sitting in the living room and at 10:30 at night I decided to just go for it. Needless to say Mr. Front Porch was none too please because who in their right mind starts a furniture makeover just days before Christmas!? Me that's who!;) I think he was afraid I would not finish it but I did and in record time.

It flows so much better now in our space and I could not be more pleased with how it turned out.

These are the same knobs I used in our kitchen makeover. They are from HobbyLobby.

I used a combination of Old White and Old Ochre for this project.

  8. Looks like it was meant to be! I get those strange urges to paint late at night, too. Luckily I can usually fend them off with ice cream. ;)
    Happy New Year to you!

  18. It looks lovely, Pamela. Great that you got it done too and it fits in so well. I painted our kitchen hutch over the Christmas holidays last year and it inspired other projects as well. Wishing you and your loved ones all the best in 2014.

  19. How funny that you started that project at bed time. You are my kind of girl. Who can predict when the inspiration strikes? You just gotta do it - take advantage of the adrenalin rush when it's there. :) Happy New Year!

  20. How crazy is that to start a big project right before Christmas? I would do exactly the same thing! Your TV armoire is perfect and I love the knobs. We have a HL now that is driving distance from our home now so I'll have to take a field trip to check out all their knobs. I love your flooring also.

    For the first time today I noticed that you had a shop (a little slow here) and I paid it a visit. What wonderful things you've collected to sell. Has that gone well for you? I'm toying with the idea of doing some online selling myself.

    Huge blessings to you in the new year Pamela. I love your blog and your wonderful party!

  24. Hi Pamela -- I'm new to your arts n crafts. I'm an Ole Woodie, but learning some new retirement activities. My question is "What is/are the 'News clipping looking things' on the inside of the armoire doors? They were there before refinishing in your first photo. Loved the look and your techniques and finishes. Don Wurner

    1. Don they are just book pages from a book I bought at the dollar store. I will take um down eventually and probably put beadboard there instead.

  25. Gorgeous! Was wondering what exactly the color ratios you used are? Exact color I have been looking for!
