armoire, chevron and warmer weather

February 2, 2011

it is another cold one today. and while we might not have tons of snow like much of the country, the cold is forcing us to stay indoors. they said on the news that in weather this cold, it only takes five to ten minutes to get frostbite on exposed skin. now, that is COLD! this weather has me wishing for warmer temperatures, mostly because i want to get started on refinishing my armoire.

i have an idea of what i want to do and i just thought i would share it with all of you. i am thinking of painting a chevron pattern on the door and drawers on my armoire. i would do it in grey and white and for a pop of color, yellow hardware. so what do you think? i love the idea of adding pattern to my room. and chevron is just classic. i was actually inspired by the piece itself because if you look closely, it already has a chevron pattern on the armoire.

here is some inspiration…

    yes yes yes! gray and white with yellow handles sounds so cool (and refreshing).
    I can’t wait to see what you do.
