An Antique Armoire in Grays
I picked this antique armoire up at a tag sale just down the road a couple weeks ago. It's simple yet handsome and retains the glorious original label from New London, CT on the back. I painted it in two shades of gray, and added mirrors to the insides of the doors. Once the paint was on it still felt a little plain, so I added decoratively painted trees to the doors. For my Tolkien geek friends out there, they're Mallorn trees, just incase you were wondering. I'm delivering this piece to a dear friend this evening along with some big clumps of limelight hydrangea. She snapped it up before I'd ever finished it!
