Happy Friday friends! It’s no secret I love painting furniture. I have got a painted furniture before & after that is gonna blow that paint brush right outta your hands.
I have had this 70’s Mediterranean style mini-armoire for months. I bought it at a garage sale and I have been starting at it, hoping I would get inspired.
I decided I really wanted to play up all of the gorgeous detail and curves while downplaying that urgly veneer wood.
I painted the entire piece in CeCe Caldwell’s Seattle Mist and then freehanded the detail in Vintage White. I did not distress this piece because I did not want any of the original finish to show through.
I kept the original hardware and painted it in Vintage White as well.
My freehanded paint job is not perfect. But I’m okay with that. I then sealed it with CeCe Caldwell’s new Waxing Cream – which I need to do a tutorial on. It goes much further than clear wax does and also creates a higher shine and more durable finish.
Let’s take a flash back into the 1970’s again with the before and after shots. Bow Chicka Wow Wow… I am certain this belonged to a really groovy dude at one time. Do you know what the proper name for this type of furniture is? It’s driving me crazy and I must know.
And here is the after. AH. That’s much better!
For now it’s in my guest bedroom. I need to wait until I have a hole to fill in my retail spaces before it goes to one of my stores. Until then I will just pretend it’s mine forever.
Don’t forget to enter to win a super cute fall wreath giveaway! Have a great weekend and go paint something!
