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.

pleas a tutorial on your dresser!

I love it! And I love the color too! Did you spray paint it? I'm looking forward to a post on it to hear more!

Love this! Looking to do one like it :) What CraigsList app do you use? I don't love the one I have.

This is amazing. I would live to steal that from you. ;]
