T.V. armoire

Remember my armoire I got a couple weeks ago? Here's a picture to remind you...

Not bad, but not really good either. People complain that I can't leave stained wood alone. Now that I have wood flooring, they can't really say that right? Well, here it is now...

I used a couple of antique glass knobs I bought at Martas room in Texas as the handles.

The paint color is called contemplative from Behr. I paint matched it to Glidden so it would be cheaper and I love how it looks. I got it with more gray in it because if I ever want to put a stain on for a more dimensional look, the Minwax stain in "Provincial" always brings out the green in my paint.

I topped it off with all my vintage globes. I swiped the brown striped suitcase from my suitcase stack. Now it's about 5' tall and I'm sure it'll shrink again.

Tomorrow I'll post some more pics of my living room and the pillows I just made out of this so stay tuned.
