We got this really great armoire at a Celadon warehouse sale several years ago. Only problem is it was very dark wood and our bedroom walls are a clashing dark color so I haven't loved the combination.
I've become such a fan of Annie Sloan chalk paint and thought it could help me transform this piece of furniture. I started with old white, but changed my mind when I was almost done. I ended up mixing Old White and Duck Egg Blue (about 1:1). I finished it with clear wax. Here are a few pictures of the project along the way:
I love how it turned out.
