i told you not to laugh when i uploaded the pic of the antique highboy armoire i bought because i knew i could make it a masterpiece despite its original condition. pic doesn't do the "after" justice. it's a soft white with metallic pearly/oyster accents and new appliques! after sanding down to bare wood which took 2 of us a full day, it took 4 coats of paint, 3 coats of primer, and then 4 more coats of paint on most surfaces. SO WORTH IT!
