I've been on the hunt for armoires. Armoires galore.
My plans for them?
I'd like to have one for linens. Even though I have a linen closet.
I'd love a huge one to house my tiny 13 inch tv.
I'd like to put all of my craft supplies behind the closed doors of a handsome beauty.
I'd put one in my dining room and would decorate it with my white dishes.
I mean, quiet frankly, I'd put one in every room.
For now, I was able top purchase this cupboard on Kijiji. It's the inexpensive version of an armoire. It measures a bit less than five feet tall with a depth of 12 inches. I scooped it up for $40. My darling husband picked it up for me while I was away visiting my family
Don't be fooled, it has three shelves.
My plan was to paint this sucker. And paint I did. Shoulda sanded it. Shoulda primed it. Shoulda, coulda, woulda. Didn't. Just kept slapping on white paint. Took far longer than it should have, but finally I loved the results.
It's gracing our bedroom right now. We threw out our old dresser with the bottom drawer that rarely opens. (I'm in the throws of redoing our bedroom. More photos to come soon!) I decided to let Shane use the cupboard because I felt his clothes would fit inside much better.
What furniture finds are you on the hunt for?
