Hello everyone, I feel winter came a little too early this year for my liking back in December, but now it feels some ehat lile Spring which I love.
I thought I’d write about the wardrobe I painted and refinished in this past month using Country Chic Paint Peacoat.
This wardrobe needed some love and a good makeover, not to mention legs. I had to add legs to this piece and give it some sass and character, along with a little height. If you add legs to your piece you have to pre order them.
First I lightly sanded the whole piece and cleaned it using my vinegar solution. I primed this piece with grey primer, but priming with a dark colour like this isn’t needed. It really depends on the piece your painting whether you feel it needs some extra grip or that extra step. I then painted the wardrobe two coats of Peacoat. I tipped the wardrobe on to its back so that I could work on the legs. I had painted the legs in Peacoat and sealed them while they were off.
I made a platform for each corner and nailed them on. I used the plates that the legs came with to secure the legs. Once they were on I stood he wardrobe up right and sprayed the Country Chic Paint clear coat on. Two coats. I had previously painted the original hardware in peacoat and put them back on. The piece was finished.
