YOU GUYS WERE FULL OF IDEAS! {ARMOIRE}



Hey there!  I hope you all had a relaxing, yet productive weekend!  Is that possible?  

Thank you all for your armoire suggestions!  See, I knew you all were smarter than me!  Here are a few of my favorite suggestions that you all sent:

Mirrors on just the doors (I'm intrigued by Overlays and think they would be a great option to consider with mirrored doors)-

A "Graywash" finish-

And, the idea of staining it a bit darker still appeals to me-

One reader suggested adding something like wallpaper, grasscloth, or fabric to the panels inside the doors-

Several of you suggested painting the inside a great color-

but let me tell you...that's where I stash lots of stuff, and it won't be on display anytime soon! 

This idea isn't under consideration for my piece, but can I just say how much I love this one?!

New knobs are a must, and I like the idea that Margie e-mailed me to use elongated hardware rather than knobs, which made think of going more modern with the hardware-

I think I'll get a little bit more done in the room before I decide for sure, and see what inspiration strikes in the meantime.  Thanks again for your help, you know I'll keep you posted!

  2. I love all these ideas, but I think my favorite is the mirrored panels inset with overlays.. It's a tough decision for sure. You seem to love the wood, so possibly stain the armoire a tad darker, and do mirror panels on the doors only, and not paint the entire thing? best of luck and I can't wait to see what you decide. You'll make it great no matter what with your good taste!

  5. So many great ideas! If I had a piece similar to the black and white, I would LOVE to try for that myself. :) You will come up with the perfect solution as your taste is incredible. I do think that more needs to be done in the room before a final decision is made...just my 2cents. LOL

  6. Ooh, now I really like the mirror idea even more after that first picture, and you could probably do either the dark stain or the white wash finish as well...so much inspiration out there.
