Revamped Armoire

You may remember me saying how I wanted to makeover decorate our master bedroom here, and you may remember me saying how I wanted to start by painting the pine armoire that sits in our room here

So this past week I finished painting the armoire, and I am so happy with the results, and I think it looks great!

I used a CIL brand melamine paint from Home Depot tinted to CIL's Quiet Hideaway. It was easy to apply, and only takes six hours to fully cure for a great long lasting finish. 

The process was pretty straight forward; sand, prime and paint. I applied two coats of the paint after I primed to ensure full coverage. 

I also replaced the hardware to match the existing hinges instead of painting the wooden knobs that were originally on the piece. This project took me about 6 hours to complete, but the results are worth it. Now I feel even more motivated to work on the rest of the room! I am always amazed at what some paint and elbow grease can do to fix up something that was not-so-awesome to start with, and transform it into a beautiful piece of work.
