This is how it looked when I started. Pretty much a blank canvas...
New Look for Small Armoire
I was asked by a store to give this little cutie an update. It had already been painted a light color but when you opened it, there was no back.
UPDATE: THIS PROJECT WAS DONE SOME TIME AGO. I PURCHASED ANNIE SLOAN CHALK PAINT AND WAX ONLINE FROM THE PURPLE PAINTED LADY (YOU CAN FIND THE STOCKIST CLOSEST TO YOU BY GOING ON THE ANNIE SLOAN WEBSITE) THE STENCIL WAS FROM MICHAELS ALTHOUGH I DON'T SEE IT LISTED ANYMORE. I'VE SENT NOTIFICATIONS TO HOMETALK TO UPDATE THE LINKS THE POSTED BELOW.
I decided to give it a sweet shabby chic look. A coat of gray paint and some gorgeous stenciling! I knew with a little work is could be a real show-stopper.
So it was painted Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Paris Gray and then stenciled with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Old White. I used Annie Sloan clear wax to seal the whole piece afterward. I already had a can of the old white leftover from a previous project.
A neighbor cut the back for me (we put 2 holes through it in case it would be used for a tv cabinet in the future). I then stenciled the back also so that there would be a nice little surprise to greet whoever opened the door.
Here's an inside pic with the stenciled wood back attached.
Stenciled cabinet for your bundle of royalty!
Finished product. I see this in a sweet nursery.
