I wanted to refurbish it and paint it a bring color since I have never had a single brightly painted piece of furniture I thought a free side-of-the-road find would be the perfect medium.
I'm not really sure what you call this particular piece; it is sort of a mini armoire with a top cabinet part and two bottom dresser drawers.
My Inspiration and Idea:
So don't freak out... this isn't any sort of announcement or anything I am simply a planner and dreamer... that gets me in trouble sometimes but like I always say I like to "keep this real" here and so it's probably no surprise that I have been dreaming of a nursery. So this refurb project is filed in "one day" nursery planning. Of course this piece can be used for whatever but I specifically have a nursery in mind when picking the color. So bare with me dreaming
|love. isn't it adorable!?!|
|Color scheme I want to use... not the pattern (not that I don't like the pattern)|
|And another fav!|
And the After Pictures:
I am so thrilled with how it turned out! I can't wait to really have a place for it to be used and useful.
The process of refurbishing it was pretty straight forward. I removed all the hardware, sanded it all down (inside and out), filled in extra drawer holes with wood filler and sanded that flush, primed it (I did a pretty think priming job and throughly coated all over it), the painted. I wanted to keep the hinges so I got steel brushes and removed all the loose debri and rust and spray painted them glossy white. I then found simple white pull knobs from home depot for $2 each.
and in case you are wondering what color I used - as has been requested by a few folks.
It's called Solar Fusion.
This sums it up nicely!
