Finally finished upcycling this ugly piece of furniture (sorry!) into a gorgeous Aqua armoire for the TV in the master bedroom.
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.
Where once my master was my least favorite room in the house it has now gained a little with all the little changes.
What do you think?
Here are the posts you missed on my master “refreshment.”
