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's English Rose Jewelry Boxes

Follow along to see how each were created. Also check out an MCM dresser in this gorgeous color I did too.

This jewelry box is all sparkly, pretty and girly!! The perfect look for a little girl inheriting her late Grandma's jewelry box.




Now onto the 2nd jewelry box, I used Krylon Looking Glass spray paint to give an aged mercury glass feel to the etched glass door pane.


The edges were distressed and Homestead House's espresso wax added for a further aged look with dimension


And here they are side by side to show same but different
