Cedar Lined Armoire in Navy with Copper - lots of pics

Fun Fusion Azure Chair

Minimal distressing gives furniture a wee bit of forgiveness when the legs and edges get banged during use. I also sanded with a sanding sponge between coats and after too to just smooth the all in one paint to a satiny smooth feel.
