Armoire Make Over

Vintage painted furniture, Armoire, West Sussex

I spotted this beauty on our local facebook selling pages - I could instantly see the potential, although it was being used in a bedroom, I just thought it was so versatile - would be great in a dining room a hallway or in a large bathroom

It originally came from the USA and the maker was Ethan Allen - which is a very 'high end' furniture store!  This was evident as it was so well made, the wood is beautiful and little additional details like hidden castors under the feet to make it easy to move around.

I removed the sections from the top shelf as I thought this made it more usable for it's 'new life' I decided to use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and painted the whole thing with Paris Grey and picked out the inside of the cupboard with Old White to give it some contrast.  The whole thing is finished with Polyvine Decorators Varnish.
This project was a lot more labour intensive than I thought it would be and I have to say I was very pleased to finish it. It is now for sale at Lovingly Made in Copthorne, RH19 2QQ.

Bye for now
