My Armoire

I got it from our neighbors about 4 years ago ($7). Probably had it for a good year before I did anything with it.

1 Spring weekend, hubs and I replaced the wood back, added a wood panel to the big door and I think we also had to put a top on it.

I painted the main part chartreuse and the drawers an off white. The inside is a bright, hot pink.

I took my bamboo stencil and added bamboo to the piece (front and sides).

I liked it, but it was a bit bright for my tastes...I took watered down brown and aged the piece. The pink is still just as bright (a lil surprise when you open it).

*please ignore the mess.
