Last week I “showed you the progress” on the painting of my TV armoire in our master bedroom. I also admitted I hadn’t cleaned the room or made the bed since I started the project. Admitting that made me go on a mission to get ‘er done! Well here she is in all her aqua glory!
The armoire wasn’t awful beforehand. It was a medium wood tone. However, I have so much wood going on with my dresser, nightstands, and bed base that I wanted to lighten up the space. So the half wood/half laminate armoire became my victim. If you missed my post on how to paint laminate click here.I used Lake Champlain in Satin by Dutch Boy’s Refresh Line. It was a nice color but needed to be toned down a bit to tie in the rest of the decor. I used Ralph Lauren’s glaze in Smoke. Here is a close-up of the finish.
I would love for the armoire to stay closed, it looks so much nicer with the doors shut.
But here is how it looks 99% of the time.
I added $7 open woven baskets from The Christmas Tree Shops. They were perfect for the DVD player and the cable box. I just poked the cords through the basket. Since it so loosely woven the remote still works through the basket but the “stuff” is hidden.
Here are the posts you missed on my master “refreshment.”
