Before and After: Van Gogh Armoire

TeamSugar member Citygal, who gave her TV cabinet a makeover in July, is at it again. This time, she's made over an armoire she bought off of Craigslist for $100 with a can of paint and some chic door handles. First, she removed the original knobs. Then, she primed the armoire and painted on two coats of Scheuder-Holland 2070 Van Gogh Yellow. Finally, she replaced the original hardware with a pair of Anthropologie Rock Candy Handles ($18). To a see a photo of the finished product,


I think her armoire looks exponentially better! I love the color she chose; it's an ideal partner for the primary colors in her painting. And the period antique brass and glass handles add a touch of nostalgia that conquers the big box retailer look of the original armoire. Wonderful, right? Have you made over any furniture lately? If so, be sure to add your photos to our Su Casa group!
