Happy Wednesday everybody. Can you believe September is almost over? This month has quickly disappeared before my eyes.
I love old wardrobes. But seriously, did people’s entire wardrobes fit inside one of these? I guess they just had fewer clothes than we do now. Not that I have a lot, but I don’t think even half or a quarter of my wardrobe would fit in one of these. I still love them.
They have so many other uses. You could store linens, craft supplies, even kitchen appliances.
I picked up this one off of Craigslist along with a few other pieces that I will share later.
It was in great shape, but beat up on the outside. So, I broke out the Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint in Louis Blue and Old White.
This time, I tried a new technique with the wax. I mixed in a little Old White with the wax to tone down the blue a little. I love the effect and the variations in color. The blue looks worn, which I love.
I left the inside as is, except for the drawers which were really scratched up. I just cleaned the rest of the wood really good. It was a bit grimy.
What do you think? This lovely piece is at Buy the Season.
