Early last fall I found the cutest little Chiffarobe on CL. It was such a petite size with a camel back & original lions head hardware. I was swooning as soon as I laid eyes on it. When I got it home I immediately decided we needed to keep it. Just for a little while, until the spring. I just couldn't
part with it store it in the garage all winter, it was to nice, the cold damp weather would warp it. That's how I convinced my hubby to put it in the game room, just until the spring. Here is what she looked like before the makeover:
I just loved all the cool scroll details & the rounded top.....
When you open it you see the drawers on one side & adjustable shelves on the other. At some point, the back was modified to make it a media cabinet, which I took full advantage of.
I had all winter to dream up what exactly I was going to do with this charming little chiffarobe. This is what I came up with:
My Mom & I painted the outside DIY Chalk Paint in Old white with Pure white on the details.......
Here I am in my finest painting clothes...lol !!!
And Duck Egg Blue on the inside......
I just couldn't resist putting the numbers on the drawers. I love the reaction you get when you open up the doors & see the inside. The blue is such a surprise & the numbers are the cherry on top!
The hardware was original & in really good condition, so all I did was polish them up!
Painting the scroll work in the bright white really made it pop!
It was bittersweet to deliver this little beauty. I was able to enjoy it all winter long. I savored every minute of this transformation. When I put her in her temporary home it was kind of sad, until Karen & Denise at V Trading started Eewing & Ahhing over it. That's all I needed to hear. I knew she was in good hands. They would soon find her a new home.
They put her right in the front window. She is such a Charming Little Chiffarobe, don't you agree? Thanks for visiting.... Dee
