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!
$8 quart of paint
So what have you been painting?
