76th Power of Paint Party… A Favorite

Sharing is caring!

Welcome Paint Lovers…

With summer just underway I’ve been taking it low-key, so I decided to share one of my favorite paint transformations on an armoire I scored from Craigslist.

So here’s a paint project flashback…

Look what I scored for only $25!

I’d been watching Craig for a month hoping to score one.  I wanted an armoire to put in our master bedroom to hide the flat screen hanging on the wall.

Here’s the steps I took:

1st – take off doors, remove drawers and hardware

2nd – sand lightly

3rd – cut the back out of the top section (so our wall mounted TV could slide on in)

4th – prime with Kilz (what I had in the garage)

5th – give it 2 coats of white paint.  My 1st coat I used up my White on White Glidden paint that I received FREE from one of their giveaways.  The 2nd coat I went and bought Valspar’s White in Satin (their pre-mixed from Lowes)

6th – spray painted all the hardware with my love, Oil Rubbed Bronze (ORB)

7th -  Wait impatiently till it’s all dry to reassemble

And here she is….


Isn’t she pretty all creamy white?

Love the hardware all ORB’ed .

Love the detailed carvings…

and lots of glorious storage inside & of course the perk of hiding of the TV!

So… total cost = $32!

$25 armoire

$8 quart of paint

Not bad!

So what have you been painting?
