Gilded Armoire: A Second Makeover

A few years back, I redid our guest room. I never got around to writing up a full room redo, because before I finished it, we needed to ditch the guest room idea and give our boys separate rooms.

I first posted about this armoire/dresser here but to give you a recap, here is the original picture:

I went all white and kept the same hardware. And I loved it for a long time.

 But then I tried to sell it...and no one wanted her. So I changed her up...and now I love her even more. If I had a little girl, this would be in her room!

I took a cue from Cassie at Primitive & Proper and used gold Rub n Buff for a gilded effect on the details.

I also added new hardware...crystal knobs with a gold backing. Typically gold isn't my thing, but I love they way they look with the gold accents.

This one is for sale locally, so shoot me a message if you are interested!

Such a beautiful piece, Allison. I love the gold accents. Sometimes it's nice to step out of our comfort zone. You did great with this one!
