Well, folks, I finally did it! I jumped right up on the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint bandwagon. Yes indeedy! Now, granted, this bandwagon is pretty full and my rear end barely made it on there.
In fact, I think I might actually be in the rear of the little donkey cart being pulled along behind the bandwagon! But, that still counts right?
As part of the mini-makeover I am doing in my son’s room, we moved this armoire/dresser/cabinet (?) from the playroom into here. It has had many incarnations over the years and was originally in my bedroom in high school. But the dark stain and brass handles didn’t exactly say “boy’s room”. I think it said, “I look old and tired so please put me out of my misery”!
I knew this would be the perfect opportunity for me to join the AS Chalk Paint Crew!
What do you think? TONS better, no? I used the color Old Ochre and while it did take a good 2-3 coats to really cover up the dark stain, I think it turned out beautifully! The new oiled bronze hardware really pops and give it such a fresh look.
I think this new color shows off the detail so much more!
I decided against doing a lot of distressing on this piece. There is so much going on in this room that I was afraid it would be too busy. So leaving it simple and crisp seemed to be the best way to go! It is so weird how different the color of the wall looks depending on the time of day! But, I am completely in love with this piece of furniture now and it has totally changed the look of the space.
I have a few finishing touches to add to his room and then I will be able to share with you the reveal of this mini-makeover. Finally! I know you are all on pins and needles, right?
