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.

Fusion Mineral Paint project # 1

I have been given the chance to try Fusion Mineral Paint and wanted to share my first project I did using it. I chose Laurentien which was listed as a twist on robin's egg blue (totally in my realm of favs). When it arrived I found it very minty, my youngest daughter's favorite color. ;)

Once the first coat of paint went on, smooth as they said it would, it proved to be easily covering the light wood. It was however too opaque and modern looking for the old chair.
 I had stained the seat in hickory and got the idea to use the hickory stain as a wash over the green.
 It turned out perfect giving the chair dimension and kept it looking its age but with a ton of life.

thank you for sharing this great paint Fusion.. stay tuned for more projects, and if you want to give this beauty a new home, please get in touch with any of the contact links in the upper right corner ;)
