When my husband and I moved into our home, we were given this very unpleasant 80's brown armoire. We were more than appreciative since we had 5 bedrooms to fill and we only had a 3 month old daughter! It has made it's way around the house from room to room, finally ending in our master bedroom for a couple of years. Recently, I decided to move it to our daughters room, since she really needed the storage for all of her clothes! My husband told me to chunk it, LOL! He hated it!!! I looked around for a new one and decided I could fix this ugly thing!!! Well, here is what I did...
Here is a lovely shot of this armoire before.
Here is another one, still ugly!
First step, destroy my bathroom and paint a coat of primer on.
After the coat of Kilz white primer. This was not pretty at all! I started having my doubts at this point, but I kept going.
After a coat of soft pink paint. This paint was in my garage, it was the color of our daughters first nursery in our old house, so clearly it has special meaning to me!
Next step, I glazed the entire thing with RL tobacco (my favorite thing these days).

The Finished Product!!! I added some cute ribbon pulls to soften the look. I stole this adorable idea from another blog, PERFECT!
