I love, love, love how this piece turned out. This armoire is painted cream with light distressing and then a wax coat to finish it off. I really contemplated painting the inside a fun color like purple or teal blue but I'm glad I went traditional and used the cream paint for the inside as well. This piece was really scratched up and full of cat hair! Seriously, did the cat live in it? I had to spend a lot of time with the clorox wipes and then sanding out all those scratches before i could paint. I found the cute blingy knobs at Hobby Lobby--they really finish the piece off.
