Custom armoire in toasted marshmallow
A custom paint job was requested for this old cedar lined armoire to give it new life. The customer wanted a soft neutral color and loved my "go to" stripped back and stained top. She found a color she liked in Plaster Paint's, toasted marshmallow and brought it to me.
but first repairs, the lifting veneer needed regluing and clamping then broke areas wood filled
and strip and sand down the top to bare wood (above right)
Then like all my pieces a good cleaning, seeing the body was oak veneer outside and cedar veneer inside it received a good wipe down so not to lift any more but the solid wood drawers got the usual good scrub.
The hardware was updated so old holes filled and sanded, they are pretty
Now to start the paint process, on goes the first coat
and a test run of the new hardware on the new paint color sans wax
I went with Daddy Van's clear beeswax with lavender over the entire piece, wax on right drawer and just paint on left
The wax deepens the color quite a bit once first applied
