A Vintage Armoire in French Blue and Mustard
I spotted this fun vintage armoire at the ReStore in Cromwell, CT a couple weeks ago. The lovely carving and molding caught my eye. It's a good sturdy piece offering bountiful storage with two drawers below and two up top along with cabinet space on the top. I sanded the case down, replaced the drawer pulls with antique wooden knobs, painted the interior in a mustard, and the exterior in a custom mixed French Blue chalk paint, then distressed and waxed the whole thing. I painted the interiors of the drawers in the mustard as well, for a playful pop of color when you open the drawers.
