Frenchy Armoire, Ooh La La!!

I love the way this piece came out!

Here she is in her "before" state... yes, I took before pics this time!!

She has lots of potential, but looking pretty plain right now!

She's all primed, getting a white paint job with some light gray dry brushing!

I need to do something to "jazz" her up, 
so I looked through some stencils, I liked the center of this one, 
so I taped it off to get only the area I wanted.

I love it and the chartreuse-y green is so yummy!

I forgot my camera the day I finished her, 
so there are some steps along the way that won't be seen.

There was this oval detail that couldn't really be seen, 
so I decided to distress around it to give this plain armoire some more pizazz.

The dry brushing really adds to it and gives the piece more depth.

I love the drawers inside..

This little chair is a perfect match to the armoire!
