Well, actually started it yesterday. IT is an old cheap, pine armoire that I got – I think from Sams Club – back when I was pregnant with my first child. Plan was to paint it white and use it for the baby’s room. I wasn’t a professional finisher then, I was just crafty. I brought it home and painted it white. I didn’t know to prime it first, thus the nice pine knot holes that you see in the photo that slowly appeared….
So - for this project, no sanding, no prepwork… just made sure it was clean. And dry.
Smooshed on a layer of Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Colonial Blue. When that dried, I used some CC Smooth Plaster and a stencil and applied a pattern to the 2 front cabinet doors. Last night, before I went to bed, I smooshed on a layer of the CC Chipping Paste. This morning I topped it off with a layer of CC Textured Basecoat Parchment. This afternoon I took out my handy dandy palm sander and hummed away. When I distressed it back to where I wanted it, I applied the Toner and Voila - a New Armoire. (still needs knobs)
Total time, if I added up all the steps - a little over 2 hours. (I did NOT finish the top or sides…yet)
