Icing on the Cake – An Armoire Makeover with D. Lawless Hardware and Shabby Paints
Good evening everyone! I am here once again with an entry of The Fab Furniture Flippin Contest. This month, August’s theme is “Icing on the Cake” sponsored by D. Lawless Hardware. A fantastic company with so much to offer, they also were kind enough to give every contestant products to use in their flip. A huge thank you to them!
So lets get started. I found this lonely, dark TV armorie on the side of the road with a $30 sign on it. As I went knocking on the neighbors door we I asked if $20 would work. I walked away with a simple black pin TV cabinet missing to knobs and $20 less in my pocket.
In my home it sat full of my stock of Shabby Paints till one day this fantastic contest came about with a sponsor to fix my hardware issue.
I changed the knobs and plates, the hinges and added seven appliques to the doors and frames. Here is the list of products I used from D. Lawless Hardware.
- Hinges – Non-mortise Large 5 hole hinge
- Knob backplates -Antique Brass – 6″ – Very Victorian
- Knobs – Oatmeal & Antique English Knob 1 1/4″
- Applique on top frame – Birch Wood Applique – Flowers & Leaves 9 3/4″
- Top door appliques – Swag Flowers, Buds, & Leaves Wood Carving 12″
- Bottom door appliques – Swag flowers, buds & leaves wood carvings
- Bottom Frame appliques – oak trim set
Now that you know the items I used to makeover this sad dark find. Lets look at how Miss Antoinette looks today.
OH MY what a looker! I love this theme as “Icing on the cake” as a hobby cake decorator I could not just add the standard hardware, I had to get appliques and create something that was unique and transforming. I fell this fits the theme quite nicely.
I used Shabby Paints Chalk-Acrylic Paint and Vax Products:
They are fantastically easy to use and have professional results.
