Fabulous French Armoire

This armoire might be one of my favorite to date. It was gorgeous just the way it was but I felt painting the trim and carving would help all the amazing details of the armoire really pop.


I painted this using two Annie Sloan Chalk Paint colors- Duck Egg Blue and Versailles. I used a smiliar technique as I did with my Verdigris Dresser, you can find the post here.

I love the dark wood showing through with all the distressing. This piece was dark waxed to give it a beautiful patina and age.

It has shelving in the upper part of the unit or they can be removed to place a large object like a television. The bottom of the armoire has four huge, spacious, and sturdy drawers. The armoire comes in two pieces, a top and bottom that stack to make it easier to move.

This piece would look amazing with dark greys and purple, bright whites, and I can even see it working with some red or cream. This armoire is stunning and a great addition to any living room or bedroom for that "wow" factor. It will be for sale on my shop page to local Las Vegans or in my Etsy shop for non-locals to inquire about shipping costs.
