Jewelry Armoire Makeover

I’ve had this jewelry armoire for several years now.  My husband bought it for me for Christmas one year and it was the closest thing I could find {for a reasonable amount of money} with that cream color.

I never really cared for the flowers and their color didn’t go with either of our master bedrooms.  Since I had the can of Old White open painting tables recently, I took that opportunity to give it a refresh.  Plus, seeing a couple of painted jewelry armoires on Pinterest gave me the push to just do it.

I painted the drawers in Old White and the surround in Duck Egg.  You may {or may not} know that I painted a Craig’s List find dresser in Duck Egg with Old White in some of the detailing.

Then I painted an accent table with the same colors to tie it into the room.

The jewelry armoire is on the opposite side of the room from the table and I thought that besides refreshing it, it would also help bring some of the Duck Egg color over to that side of the room.  I love the two-tone color scheme.  Because the hardware was not removable, I had painted over them. I came back in when it was all done and used some Antique Gold Rub N Buff on them.

Some clear and dark wax {FYI: do the Rub N Buff after you wax}.  Now I feel it fits in better with the rest of the room.

It certainly wasn’t a project I needed to add to my list at this point, but I’m glad I got it done.

Hi Kathy, Wow it turned out gorgeous. I love it and looks like it was part of your furniture collection. Wonderful new look. So much better then the flowers.
I have one similar in wood tone and painted it black, but now I am inspired to change it up again.
Great job!

The jewelry armoire looks wonderful, and perfect with the other furniture. I want to paint a small end table two colors, but am having a hard time figuring out which parts to paint which color.
