I know, I know, but just bear with me.
I found this on CraigsList for … get this …… $139.00!
One of my best bargain acquisitions if I do say so myself.
(I got the idea for searching for an armoire on CraigsList from Kearney of A Detailed House’s fabulous way-popular blog. *so jealous* here is her link:) http://adetailedhouse.com/2012/08/07/what-i-got-on-craigslist/
It has great bones, but the color doesn’t turn me on. The pictures may look like it’s a blonde wood, but it really is a painted crackle finish about the color of Grey Poupon (Or baby poo. Not the after-eating-peas baby poo, but the after-eating-yellow-squash baby poo).
Anyways, I had already decided to paint it before I had even seen it. This is for Guest Room A, which I’m planning a slightly Frenchy feel. Not all the way French Shabby Chic, but just for a touch, a hint.
I’m thinking a flat screen TV in this armoire would be just the thing!
Stay tuned, I’ll have this done with my usual
expedience meandering way.
Lovingly painting ~~ D
