The Refinished Armoire

Boy, am I excited to finally be posting this project. The armoire is finally finished! Just so you remember, here's what it looked like when I found it at a yard sale for $5:


Kinda sad and definitely dated. But this thing is real wood. And it was $5. Five bucks! 

I ripped off the trim on the side panels and patched the holes, changed out the hardware and gave it a nice, clean coat of white. And here she is, in all her glory:


I am loving the sleek new handles:


A six-pack was only $7 at Target. Woo hoo!



One project down, one more to go and then I'll be ready to show you my whole living room.

And because we all love before and after photos, here you go:

    1. Thanks Alise. You know all about refinishing furniture and how exciting it is when it's done. I am still looking for something I can paint pink like your kitchen island thing. :)
