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.

Fun Fusion Frames

Frames are such a fun way to add color in a room. Here are some I did using Fusion Mineral Paint 

First 2 up are done in English Rose, a soft pink

The ornate vintage wood frame had 2 coats of English rose then a coat of custom mixed rose gold and to bring out the ornate details, Fusion's ageing wax was wiped over all.

Chicken wire was added in the center making it perfect for photos, sunglasses, jewelry etc.

The wider solid oak frame was distressed then white washed with Fusion's liming wax for a soft pretty look. Wide grosgrain ribbon was hot waxed and power stapled in the frame to great a sweet barrette display frame.

This wide solid oak frame was painted in Fusions little tea pot. This is such a pretty aqua color.

To bring out the ridged details and give it a fun aged look, I added Fusion's ageing wax

The aged aqua finish is so lovely

On this solid wood frame, I applied Homestead House Milk Paint in Quaker blue layering on Inglenook and homestead blue and topping off with Fusion's espresso wax.

Magnetic wire mesh was added to this one

Fusion's brushed steel for the win on this pretty frame

And on this artist frame, the outside frame was painted a soft grey and the inner textured frame was painted Fusion picket fence, a bright white

A fun font was used to create a room sign to add to the center, perfect gift for my sweet God Daughter.
