One of my sweet blog followers commented that my teaser picture of the wardrobe/armoire looked “wickedly wild”….. I love it!!!!!
Now, I KNOW some of you are frightened…..but, remember it’s not staying in my dining room….it’s going in a newborn baby boy’s nursery to be used as his closet.
His bedding is this precious polka dot from Nell Hills. The piece is going to look A-dor-able in his room.

His momma picked out the Sherwin Williams paint colors and gave me an inspiration photo which had very unmeasured, uneven stripes on it.
I convinced my hubby to let me paint the piece in our dining room. And I pinkie sweared not to spill paint on the carpet.
No judging, ok?
The next day, I came back and taped over some of the cream lines that were originally taped over. I knew taping over fresh paint would pull the paint off in chunks and I wanted to use that to my advantage.
Then the sanding began. Remind me to never sand a piece of furniture in my formal dining room again. The dust was thick! Hubby didn’t complain, but I think I noted some twitching. God, I love that man.
I used a metal putty knife to go over the whole piece ….it is great on edges……
I painted the inside the Softer Tan and my client to installed a clothing rod.
Then, we had to load it. Or er…..my husband and neighbor and client had to load it. Oh Lord! That is one big wardrobe!
Eventually I got to see the striped armoire in her son’s room. Seriously, is this not the cutest nursery ever for a little boy named Dax??? Those polka dots are actually 3-dimensional and my client’s husband cut them and painted them.
I would have liked to have stolen the curtains in here also. All pleated at the top. Stylin’ indeed.
So much fun to get to see my work in its own room!
