WIP

Several weeks ago my DH and I began this Work In Progress. We were driving through a new neighborhood when I spotted this armoire for sale. Not knowing where I wanted to use it, I passed that $50 bargain up...but a week later visions of that pine armoire were still dancing in my head... and not wanting to pass up such a great deal, I asked my husband if he would return with his handy dandy pickup truck and load 'er up. Lucky for me, the piece was still there. The painting began...and this is what she looks like today! A couple more coats ought to complete the process and then, she'll take up residence in our bedroom.

Becky, that a very pretty armoire! Glad it was still available at such a great price. (I have passed on a couple of things that I regretted later.)

We'll want to see it in place, ya know?

Hi Becky,

I love your armoire. It looks like a Broyhill. If it is, we have that set at our house in OK. I had envisioned it painted black too. What fun! Show us more of your creations.

Have fun,

Beverly

Hey, I wanted to stop by and thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment about me being "published"~I still laugh when I say that.
I was wondering if you wanted me to sign you up for the movie giveaway I am having?
God Bless You,
Robin

Wow! That's a beautiful armoire. Lucky you that it was still available! It must have been meant just for you.

So cool! I just love seeing people's decorating projects, especially the ones that I think I could actually duplicate.
