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.

Fusion's newest release ~ English Rose

I love new color reveals and Michael Penney's latest addition to his line of FMP is a beauty. Soft pale pink called English Rose.

I recently purchased a solid wood MCM dresser, well made with dove tail joints but it had the hi gloss finish. To be sure my paint had the best adherence I started with a good coat of Fusion Mineral Paint's ultra grip using their micro roller. Super easy application now to leave to dry minimum 12 hours.

The hi gloss finish was dark and wanting to save paint I once again coated the entire dresser and drawers with Fusion Mineral Paint concealer using the micro roller. This is a reclaimed product they make that gives a brighter base under your lighter paint colors.

Now the fun part, adding color; I used the micro roller yet again and put on 3 coats of English rose.

 In the front edges I used the Staalmeester sash brush. It worked very well for these tight hard to get at areas.

The legs did not have the concealer, you can see one coat on the right and two on the left, I ended up putting 4 coats on the legs

I always am excited to see the drawers back in and hardware on but it was left to dry over night then hauled in, the legs put back on and here it is

This solid walnut Canadian made MCM dresser has been revived in a soft pale pink which enhances the original gold hardware, drawer details and leg caps. The 4 solid wood dovetailed drawers provide ample storage and slide smoothly. The sweet curvy legs and sweeping curved front design and curved top drawer front add elegance.  It measures 36"L X 18"D X 40 1/2"H. This gorgeous hand painted dresser is the perfect statement piece in your Princess's room. Message me if your looking
