Today I need to at least get the sanding and priming done, which may be harder than it sounds with my little "helper" in tow. I've known that I wanted to change the armoire to white, but I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with it. At first, I found this picture and fell in love with the fabulous overlay and two tone doors.

Next, I saw this armoire from Ballard Designs. Love the mirrors, but probably not realistic to get mirrors cut. Perhaps next time! (wink wink)
I came across this armoire from Crate & Barrel. I love the texture on the doors.
I love all of these armoires, but none of those options made sense. I definitely didn't want to put more money into the armoire than it's worth (or more than it would cost to buy a new one)! So, then I saw this picture, and I LOVED it! I can do all of this with paint (minus turning an armoire into a chest of drawers, that is). Let me rephrase: I can TRY to do this with paint! Wish me luck!
