Peach & Blue Armoire for a Girl’s Room

This is a short post just to show you this pretty armoire I painted a couple of months ago.

My customer is moving to a new house and decided to add some colors to her little girl’s room. The choice was peach with bird’s egg blue on the inside.

This is how it looked before.


I also painted a six-drawer dresser to match. You can check the pictures for that one on my Facebook page.

This is how I painted this piece.

  • Cleaned with TSP diluted in water
  • Fixed scratches and holes with wood filler
  • Applied deglosser on the entire piece using a clean rag. This is a great substitute to light sanding if your piece is in good condition.
  • Sprayed Rustoleum white primer on the entire piece. Inside and out.
  • Spray painted 2 coats of Benjamin Moore Bird’s egg blue on the inside of armoire and drawer.
  • Spray painted 2 coats of Benjamin Moore Summer Peach Tree 088
  • Applied 3 coats of Minwax Polucrylic with my paint sprayer

I love this color combo! My customer and her daughter are very happy too.








Happy holidays everyone! I’ll be back next year. May 2017 be a much better year for our world.

It all started in the spring of 2013. I realized how tired I was to see my house entirely decorated with IKEA stuff. Nothing against IKEA, but after 12 years, I just needed some change. I wanted stylish, original furniture, but noticed that everything I liked from retail stores was way out of my budget. Thanks to Google, Youtube, and a couple of amazing blogs, I was able to discover and explore the world of furniture refinishing, and it was the beginning of my addiction. I now spend my days rescuing old, dull, unwanted pieces of furniture to give them a fresh look so they can be displayed, used and loved again for many more years to come. Thanks for stopping by.
