Unfortunately, I was just too excited to start painting and I didn't take a before picture. I've been needing something to go in my front living room. I've tried other pieces but this was was just right. I am planning on using it for extra storage. My home doesn't have any storage space or basement, and all out closet space is already being used. This armoire is great for holding my sewing machine, extra blankets, sheets, slipcover, and out of season decor.
I repainted the armoire in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Old Ochre. This is the first time I've used this color, I found it to be a bit more yellow and creamy than what I had seen on the website. It's still a beautiful neutral that could go with everything. I'm going for a sophisticated country look in my living room. I wanted this piece to look very old, dirty, and well loved. I think it looks awesome and I'm so pleased with the outcome.
I just have a few more projects and a little more painting until I'm ready to show my living room off.
I should be finishing up another armoire next weekend. This one might be my favorite to date :) Here is a sneak peek.
