I am "almost" a furniture painting virgin. Yes, I know....that is really strange isn't it? :-) I have done a few small items like tables but nothing big, nothing like this!
I've wanted to paint this armoire for a very long time. My first inclination was to paint it black but I'm not so sure now. From everything I've read, most of you love the ASCP but in my opinion, it is difficult to choose a color. I see a "grey" mentioned, however, then the person says it's more taupe. A blue or greenish shade seems to look like the opposite color. I really need help!!! Now, I know a ton of you love white ~ I'm not there. I can't say that I would be happy with a definite blue or green....perhaps a grey? But it's gotta have some sort of highlights or glaze I think. See, I'm all over the place and I know it! Perhaps I should just go and look at regular paint samples and see if anything appeals to me. I just thought it would be easier NOT to have to do a primer, sand, etc.
I have a cherry red love seat and a huge black and white ticking chair with ottoman. The accents; pillows, tables, decorative items, etc., are black, red, animal prints, a bit of silver and gold, etc. There are a few touches of yellow in art work as well as sage green.
This is the armoire with the doors closed:
Doors open, showing the bottom portion of the unit. The books to the right are some of the group I've been sorting through. :-)
P.S. I will take a few snapshots of the entire space tomorrow when the sunlight will help the photography and post those. Should have thought of that before posting but I didn't. ;-)
