when i saw the “after” shot for this armoire project i was hooked. i know a lot of people hate anything painted, but i think this is such a great example of the power of a coat of inexpensive paint. that seriously sad veneer front on the “before” became something chic and stylish (reminds me of the viceroy hotel and kelly wearstler) thanks to a little black and white detailing. chicago design student emily haan is behind this makeover, which she finished with the help of her husband. it’s always nice to see a couple re-work pieces together- great work, guys!
