White Armoire

We painted our TV armoire white.

As you can see in the before pictures, it was kind of a dirty looking color.  It was part of a bedroom set that belonged to my daughter.  When she bought a new one, I took the armoire and her daughter took the bed and night tables.

It has beautiful carvings on it...


I kept the original hardware and just painted them white...

H added some can lights above the shelf...

The lights really make a difference ...

I covered up the TV stand with a floral garland...oops...I see a run in the paint!  H can fix that in a heart beat!

It really brightened up the corner...I love it!

  5. It looks far better painted white (tho the photos look pale pink) and it makes the carvings stand out more. So cool!
