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.

classic refinished coffee table in plaster-cappucinno


When a great customer offered me purchase of her mission style coffee and end table set I jumped. I love this chunky craftsman look. It did however have some water damage on the top so needed some reloving.


Orbital power sander to the rescue, a few 80-120 grit pads later it was all sanded off and ready to get a new look.


let the sanding begin and done, now for a good scrub and let dry well


I chose my favorite Homestead House's new stain and finishing oil all in one in cappuccino. This easy to use no chemical smell finish goes on so easy and leaves a lovely finish. I sand lightly with 0000 steel wool between coats to make it even smoother. I went with 3 coats of the dark brown stain and then added the natural color for additional durability. Each coat was left over night to dry well.


for the base I chose Fusion Mineral Paint in a warm white called Plaster.
Two coats lightly sanded between with a sponge sander and left to dry overnight


I like to add some depth to this creamy color so I added Homestead House espresso furniture wax . It adds character too and easy to brush on and wipe off. I also likes it adds a bit more durability to the bottom shelf surface. Time to reattach bottom shelf and hardware and haul in to stage this beauty for sale. Did I mention I have the matching end table that can be done in the same techniques and colors?
