ASCP

Armoire makeover

  • I’m  going to show you how I transformed this vintage armoire. Here is a before photo…image
  • First, I cleaned it with TSP and aired it out for a few weeks. It had an unpleasant smell to it. I also used fabric softener sheets and placed them randomly inside.
  • image
  • Next, I chose French Linen ASCP color for the first and second coat. I worked all around from top to bottom making sure I painted all the areas. Here is a video I shared on Instagram and Facebook…..
  • Then, I worked on the details of the piece with Old White ASCP using a small brush.

  • The next step is adding some depth and I clear waxed the outside of the armoire.
  • I took 1/2 water 1/2  of old white ASCP ( one tablespoon)and painted on randomly. I used a white rag and rubbed off after 15-20 seconds.  This created a subtle white washed look. (Very hard to show picture of the results)

The inside of armoire was the last thing I worked on. I painted inside two coats of Old White ASCP. I light distressed the outside and inside with a sand block.

While everything is drying I painted the original handles old white. For a splash of color I replaced 4 with blue glass ones I purchased at Hobby Lobby. ( FYI Hobby Lobby has knobs on sale every other week!)

Overall it took about 2 1/2 weeks to complete this project. The armoire has wheels so it can be easily transported. I’m very happy how it turned out. What do you think?

* I apologize for the pictures. The lighting in my home is not that great and the weather lately has not helped with better lighting. *

Small dresser makeover

  • I had the privilege to paint a cool piece of furniture for a customer. This is the before pictureimage I will share what I used for this transformation.
  • First, I painted two coats of Coco color ASCP.
  • image
  • Next, I painted the detail wood with a very small paint brush old white ASCP.
  • image
  • Then, I clear waxed entire piece. I layered the old white with a dark wax.
  • While the piece was drying I painted the handles old white, clear wax then dark wax. (In that order)
  • image

After everything was dry. I used a very small amount of Pure white color to get a white washed look on top of the Coco color.

Before & After side tables

This week I had the chance to paint these wonderful tables. I knew right away I wanted to paint them a neutral color. I chose old white ASCP. Here is a before picture:image First, I cleaned the piece with a damp cloth. I ended up using Q-tips to clean the carved areas.

Next, I painted one coat of paint all over including legs. Two coats in the center of table.

Then, to add some color I used duck egg blue ASCP on the carved flowers.

Finally, I sealed with clear wax & distressed lightly on the top of the table.

Here is are some after pictures: imageimage

I painted two of the tables the same style & I can’t wait for them to find a home! If you are interested in these tables they are at Wagon Wheel Antique Mall Ocala, Florida. They are priced at $99 each. They would make a great side table or coffee table. Thanks for reading my blog. Let me know if you have tried something similar and comment below.
