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.

Thank goodness for this heavy duty furniture dolly to move it around and also allow to be tipped on its back for the cleaning and sanding portions.
As well I was able to paint the underside and base areas with primer all around to seal.

Homestead House Milk Paint in midnight blue was mixed up and painted on

One coat was all that was needed to get good coverage over the original dark stained wood.

Homestead Blue meets black wax

I purchased this unusual accent/end table because of its shape and because it was actual solid wood, no laminate like many out there. The hardware intrigued me too but the carved doors called for some dark detailing. Fusion Mineral Paint's Homestead Blue seemed the perfect color to paint this piece and add my new black wax.
 sand the top and scrub thoroughly are steps 1 & 2
I LOVE the ease of painting with Fusion; a good shake of the can & a good polyester brush and your set. It goes on so smooth, self levels and adheres amazingly. Just one coat was all that this piece needed.

Once dry, which was not long later, another great feature of Fusion paint I added black wax for detailing and shadowing.

The hardware perhaps took the longest part of the process. It is solid brass but was needing a good cleaning so out came the brass polish and about an hour later this was the result.

With the hardware put back on when dry, here is the final project.

This MCM dresser was painted in the same gorgeous color, to see how it was created click HERE.
