French Country Armoire Makeover

Last week I showed you this set and started with the mirrored dresser seen HERE to get us started. It went from orangey oak veneer to a look that had many of you surprised how easy it really is to update with no prep work. Yep, it’s that easy.ย Today, I’m tackling the entertainment center and turning it into a French country armoire.

Normally, I try to keep sets like this together, but I have found that every time I do I end up selling them separately since no one wants a set. So, this time I’ve done two completely different looks to the pieces. Last time was all about the dark color, while today I’m going to Read more

Be sure to see what all of the other ladies have created for you later in the post.

Over the years, I have whitewashed many pieces of furniture and it is still one of my favorite ways to age a piece and create dimension. The subject for my project today is my very own farmhouse dining table. We were gifted our table from my husband’s employer Osborne Wood Products, when we both graduated college. To say I was excited was an understatement. I got to choose the wood, the legs, and the finish…eep! Rough part is that 15 years later , our table has made it through 6 children, but is in need of a makeover. (did I just say 15 YEARS ago I graduated college? wow.)
