Happy Monday guys! Hope your weekend was fabulous. Don’t you love when you score free furniture! Our neighbors were trying to sell their old armoire at a garage sale. The piece is big… and rough. They wanted $25 by the end of the day, but I decided to wait. The next day their kids came by asking if I still wanted the piece… if so, it was mine for free. SCORE! All she needed was some paint to give her a whole new look.
Sweet Shannon at Fox Hollow Cottage sent me some Maison Blanche to try out.
I picked out Franciscan Gray. It’s a gorgeous light-to-medium gray. This paint is awesome because it takes no prep work. I didn’t sand… I just gave it a good wipe down with a wet paper towel.
Certain areas I almost dry brushed it. This armoire is a very “rough” piece, so I wanted to match it’s style with peak-a-boos of the wood coming through.
The insides of the doors I painted with chalkboard paint. Can you believe it’s only 17 days till Thanksgiving!
And of course you want to see the before…
and one more look at the after…
I can tell you that I loved the paint. It went on super smoothly and covered just perfectly. I finished it off with some wax. If you’re in the market for some new paint or just want to try Maison Blanche paints, then Shannon is your gal.
Thanks for stopping by friends!
