Armoire is all finished….

Here it is all finished! It really fits in the room better now, so I’m glad I went ahead & tackled it. I loved the old version, but it was time for a change. Thanks for taking a peek & I hope you like it too!

This is the striped fabric from my bedding & I used a dotted blue & brown ribbon to trim it out. I’m really happy with it now!

  12. Just gorgeous! You are so talented. LOVE IT!

  13. I love the idea of re-purposing an old armoire. My question is this: I have some large, heavy items that don’t have any suitable storage place in my typical townhouse kitchen cabinets. I’d like to get an old armoire for them, but the kinds I’ve seen at thrifty places all have such lightweight shelving which I’m afraid wouldn’t hold up to the heavy duty job they would be pulling. Any ideas on *strong* armoire resources. Hint: I don’t want to pay more than $75 for the furniture :D, that’s not including supplies.
