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.

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.

  • Nice redo Grace those appliques sure add a beautiful french flair! I’ve been meaning to try out some Shabby brand paints for a while now, as I’ve been admiring the shimmery finishes that have been floating around lately.

    • Thank you Brenda! I have to say I love the shimmers by Shabby Paints. I even mix a dab of them into my wood finishes/topcoats to make the wood surfaces glow. You can’t see the shimmer that way unless you know what your looking for but it just makes that wood look stunning.

      I just got some pearl in and I can’t wait to try it.

  • This is beautiful and a very smart entry! My friend has been encouraging me to use a chalk paint to update some of my treasured wooden pieces. You may have just convinced me to do so and I even have an entertainment center that needs a fresh new look. Thank you for a marvelous redo.

    • Thank you for your kind comment. I am excited to inspire others as I have been so inspired myself. I love wood too. I keep some things wood and some a mix of paint and wood also. I only use Shabby Paints products as they are so easy and non toxic for my pets and family in my home. If you every have any questions I would be happy to help. I love sharing the things I have learned.

      Have a wonderful day!
