Remember, oh five weeks or so ago, when I revealed my plans to paint the armoire I bought off of Craigslist? Well I'm here to announce that the armoire transformation is complete- woo hoo!
A before shot of the bargain armoire (sans the drawers, as I had already removed them- oops!).
Drumroll please, as here is the 'tah-dah' shot of the armoire, after it was sanded, painted, left to dry, and then roughed up to achieve the distressed look! The helpful gentleman at Home Depot recommended using a semi-gloss paint, which I did, but in the end I wasn't happy with the sheen, thus the roughed up/distressed look! :)
I searched high and low for the perfect (affordable) knobs, and purchased them at World Market for $5 a piece and used a $10 off of $30 coupon, so they ended up being a sweet deal! :)
I have plenty of room inside of the armoire to store my yards of fabric! Each individual bin holds a particular yardage of fabric, and within the bin the fabric is organized my designer/manufacturer.
The drawers neatly hold all of my scraps, zippers, and accessories. The scraps are organized by color, which makes it easy when I'm looking for something in particular! :)
