so, this beast of an armoire was my in laws. they have had it for years in their dining room. we inherited it about 2-3 years ago, because i knew the one day when my studio was done, i would want it to store all my goodies.
so, there it sat in our third car garage for years, until our basement was done. then i lacked the motivation to actually paint the sucker. i mean it’s huge, plus, you not only have to paint the outside, but also the inside. needless to say, it was quite the project. but, i am SO happy that it is finally finished and has found it’s new home in my studio.
as you can tell, the above picture is the before. lots of fun off white, faux gold finish with chicken wire in the glass, and some interesting brass hardware.
and, here she is today…. the after.
i painted it all white, with the inside back wall a nice robin’s egg blue to match my stained floors. i thought that was a nice touch, plus i had the extra paint already from norah’s nursery.
a detailed shot of the inside. the shelves aren’t styled yet whatsoever, i just threw a few things in there. but, it’s been so great to get all my stuff organized! i had a goal to have my studio organized and put together by the end of october so i could work on my jewelry for my upcoming shows. i barely made the cut! now, i just have the finishing details to work on.
