Jewelry Armoire Redo: Update

Are you wearing your green today?

Guys... I'm finally making progress on the jewelry armoire I bought a few weeks ago! (here's the link to my previous post if you're playing catch up!)

Last night, I started by ripping out all the old (and gross) pink liner and I'm now in the process of tracing the old pieces onto some heavy poster board. I'm also covering/wrapping that with the fabric I've chosen. I'm planning on painting the exterior of the piece a soft, ivory color, and line the insides with a coral-colored flannel-like fabric with these amazing blue damask accent cottons I got from JoAnn Fabrics. I'm also planning on refinishing the original hardware a dark brown color.

Honestly, I would have had NO idea how to go about this project without the help of crafter and photographer Wendy Sheaffer. I'm following her post about how she upcycled her own jewelry armoire last year. Seriously, this has been SO much help for me! Awesome Pinterest find over here. *Score*

The next thing to do is wait for a nice enough day that I can take this baby outside, sand her down, and start the priming! We had decent weather this weekend, up in the 50s on Saturday, but yesterday was sadly only 30 degrees. Spring is technically in four days, right? Let's get the show on the road and bring in some warm weather pleeeease!

Stay tuned for more updates to come! I can't wait until it's finished. :)


  1. What a fun project!! Can't wait to see an update :) I'm sure it'll be so nice to have all this storage space for your accessories.

    1. Aw thanks! It's been a lot of work, but I can't wait for it to be finished! Update coming soon! xoxo
