Distressed White Clothing Armoire

Distressed White Clothing Armoire. Facelift Furniture DIY Blog.Tiffany & Ben purchased this great armoire on craigslist.  In place of the natural pine finish, they wanted it custom painted white with light distressing–which accentuated all the great detail.  An additional shelf later placed in the upper storage area provided even more storage.

The original hardware was also spray painted white.  The armoire is now part of their girls’ bedroom.  You can also find the finished armoire featured at That Village House.

Off White Chunky Clothing Armoire – Before & After

Off White Clothing Armoire Before & After

When this clothing armoire first caught my eye in a thrift store, I was reminded of how out-dated and undesirable a piece like this can appear. There’s not doubt this armoire was made with style in mind, but 30-40 years later, the dated appearance betrays that it’s best days are over.

Unless of course, you let your imagination go in an entirely different direction! I asked myself how it would look painted, glazed, and distressed. Was there a way to create a whole new look off of all the chunky and ornate molding? I decided so, and took the risk.

I refinished the armoire in Off White Tobacco Glaze was used to accent all the molding and ornate areas, and provide a weathered look to the entire piece. Glaze does wonders with bringing out the best in an old piece, and that certainly was the case with this armoire.

I kept the original vintage pulls, letting them provide a throw back to the piece’s original design.
