Cedar Lined Armoire in Navy with Copper - lots of pics

When I purchased this solid armoire cabinet it did not take long to decide on a navy paint color. I also like the carved details on the front but thought the top and sides would look lovely stenciled with the hardware copper. Using Homestead House Milk PaintCutting Edge Stencils & Krylon spray paint I achieved my vision.

But first it needed a good cleaning starting with vacuum followed with a scrub with warm soapy water to remove any past gunk and dirt that would hamper paint adherence. The entire outside was lightly power sanded to smooth the wood surface then wiped well again.

Country Chic Blog Squad challenge #2

I am a huge teal/turquoise fan, it is the accent color of my home. I am drawn to it in every color pallet of paint out there. Country Chic's tropical cocktail was the first color my eye went to and I knew I had to try it.
I originally had planned on painting this cute little pine wagon shelf a traditional red but my sister suggested doing it tropical cocktail for a fun rendition.

 I chose it in original formula and applied 2 coats, what a gorgeous color

to add a bit of contrast and dimension, the wheels got a few coats of glossy white and highlighted inside the hearts and outside the wheel with the pretty blue.

All was sealed with 2 coats of Country Chic tough coat, a poly like eggshell like finish.

This is going to be so adorable in a nursery or bedroom of some lucky child!
