Isn't "vintage teal" so pretty?! AH, I love. Please ignore the bottom drawer that is slightly open. Guess I was too lazy to close it for the pic.
I was going to hit Hobby Lobby to get some new knobs but after cleaning/polishing the old ones I decided I loved the look. I love how the wood shows through the paint. Might have been an accident but I went with it!
Pretty. I want to paint my whole house this color-but I won't, promise.
1. First I sanded the entire armoire, not too heavily though, just enough to give it some "grab" so I could paint.
2. After removing drawers and shelves I got to painting!
3. After I applied 2 coats of this pretty pretty princess paint and it had fully dried, I LIGHTLY sanded over the paint to give it a rustic look and so some of the dark brown original wood could show through.
SO easy and cheap and I love it. Since the dresser was free from my parent's house, I spent less than $20 on paint and supplies. Go shop your parent's house for old furniture and get busy!
