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
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
I applied 3 coats of Homestead House's new stain and finishing oil all in one in cappuccino for a beautiful top
Then it was on to Daddy Van's gorgeous color café noir for dimension and bringing out detailing
again see the difference on top drawer above and left door below
Now for the finishing touches.. the pretty new glass hardware
