Armoire Inspiration

I picked up this great dresser/armoire last weekend while on a thrifting adventure with my lovely sister-in-law.

Okay.  I know it’s ugly and beat up, but it’s a diamond in the rough!!  ;)  It has three drawers behind the cupboard doors.

So, I’ve been pondering what to do with it. 

A light, French gray is always tempting, but I’m working on another piece right now that’s that color, so I think I need to mix things up a bit. 

Off-white is always a safe bet.  But can get a little BORING. 

I saw this GREAT charcoal gray armoire on Pinterest. (Sorry, I don’t know the source.  If it’s yours, let me know and I’ll add a link!)  Charcoal was definitely a strong contender in the color battle royale!

But in the end, and on the strong recommendation of the large majority of commenters on our Twice Lovely Facebook Fan Page, and heavily based on the inspiration of this fantastic armoire from the one-and-only Nester…

I’ve decided to go with a Robin’s Egg Blue!

Stay tuned!  ;)
