Jewelry Armoire

Craiglist – if you search long enough, you will find it!  I wanted a tall jewelry cabinet.  I have the bright nightstands, and thought a jewelry armoire in the same color would add that pop of color on the other side of the room.  
So I started searching – my limit was $40.  There were tons for $100, but I knew I didn’t want a nice one because I was just painting it.  So I held out.  I got one for $40 – score – the problem (sort of!) was that when I got it, it was too nice!!  It was new in the box.  Put together, it matched exactly my newly stained dresser.  I felt bad painting it because it seemed too nice.

 Side note – I can’t believe how amazing my dresser turnout out – I need to do a whole post on it.  But do you remember the before – what a difference!

Anyways, back on track.  I kept it as is for a while, but never loved it.  Then I thought, hey, I bought it for the whole purpose of painting, who cares if it’s nice, it was only $40.  So I did it.  And LOVE it.  No regrets!

My only issue is that there is next-to-no necklace storage – see what I did with all my necklaces later today…

Did you know there’s a Craigslist app?  I had it for the keywords “jewelry armoire” and whenever something new posted it would ding me – awesome!!  Get those deals before they’re swiped by someone else!

    I want a tutorial on your dresser. We recently stained a chest of drawers and used the Minwax 2 in 1 poly and stain and it stinks so bad like stain that we can’t even have it in our bedroom! I want to know what you used for next time. I hate that I put so much work into it and it can’t be used.
