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.

Milk Painted Farmhouse Solid Oak Stools




I purchased these tall solid oak stools thinking they would be perfect in a white with dark wax.


So for coat number one I mixed up Homestead House Milk Paint in limestone and brushed it on.


The next day when dry I was just not feeling the white, the stools called for a fun color.
Homestead House Milk Paint in Laurentien was the color of choice.


It looked perfect, vintage farmhouse stool color for sure.


And of course in typical milk paint style, one stool is more green and one more blue :)


To seal the milk paint I went with Miss Mustard Seed hemp oil , it goes on so easy with a brush. Let soak in and wipe off. I then added Fusion Mineral Paint ageing and espresso waxes on the top and all the crevices to keep the farmhouse aged look.



they work great as a plant stand too ;)
