When I bought this gorgeous vintage wardrobe I couldn't wait to bring it to life! It was perfect for what I had in mind. You just don't see pieces like this anymore!
Narnia awaits you! Lol!
What girl wouldn't want one of these?
Normally I wouldn't sand something down if I was going to chalk paint it, but this piece is so old and I wasn't quite sure what type of stain was used and was afraid it may have bled through!
I bought the handles at Home Depot, they have a great DIY section now!
The hardware is amazing!
I mixed up my own chalk paints for this project.
2 Tablespoons of calcium carbonate
1 Tablespoon of water
1 cup of latex paint.
Finished up with Annie Sloan's soft clear wax.
I added a few drops of essential oil into this mix to make it smell good! I used linen scent, $2 from walmart!
I knew I was going to paint the motifs inside that's why I chose gray and of course to match the knobs!
I added a framed mirror to the door. It was easy, I just used gorilla glue and let it set overnight! It only cost $5 at Walmart, then I chalk painted the frame to blend in with the door.
This hook was attached to something else that I had and I thought it would be a nice addition to this piece! A great place to hang silk scarves.
Functional, fun and very chic!
Ha ha! One had to improvise!
This large motif costs $20 in the craft store, so to save spending any more than I needed to I printed out a picture of the motif and used my projector! It took some time to do, but it was worth it!
Using an electric sander, I roughed up the edges.
I wanted to add something special inside and I love the meaning of this motif!
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great week!
