Shabby French Armoire

One more piece is out of the garage! I see a light at the end of the tunnel :)
This one was taking up a lot of space so I was motivated to finish it quickly.
I remembered a before shot after I had already dismantled everything.
The finish was very worn, and some white paint livened it up. 
 I took dozens of pictures of this “pose” using all different settings and not one of them came out very clear.
 I love the feet.
 And all the curvy details.
 After cleaning the original hardware, I spritzed them with satin nickel and then took steel wool to them to age them before spraying on a clear sealer.
 The flip down drawer is a great feature for media storage.
It would be so cute in a baby’s room, though!
