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

Mission Style End Table with Fusion's Plaster & Cappuccino Stain

I refinished the matching mission style coffee table awhile back and just had the matching end table stored in the stock to paint area.  Needing to make room as well as get the set ready to sell together I pulled out the end table and finally finished it,

I did the same steps with this table too EXCEPT the top. The end table top is in great condition so I only light sanded it and then applied  Homestead House's new stain and finishing oil all in one in cappuccino mixed with ebony. This easy to use no chemical smell finish goes on so easy and leaves a lovely finish. Each coat was left over night to dry well with only 2 coats needing to be applied.

The base was done exactly the same, Fusion Mineral Paint in a warm white called Plaster was applied in two coats lightly sanded between with a sponge sander.

first coat on

Once dry and sponge sand distressed on the edges, I added Homestead House espresso furniture 
wax .  This set is now back to matching and updated for a classic farm house look.

I have received product as a brand blog rep in exchange for this post, but ALL the opinions are entirely MY own.  This post contains sponsored links for Fusion Mineral Paint & Homestead House Paint Co.
