The McMillan Armoire




Did I mention that I love old 70’s furniture? I do.. I really do. Those pieces are sure solid, well built and heavier than an elephant to carry. And the vintage hardware are larger than life.




When you look at a vintage piece that has an ugly wood grain and lots of details it’s hard to look past it and envision it as anything but 70’s furniture. Back in it’s glory days, this armoire would have been found in a bedroom holding socks, shirts & pants. But take that same chunky piece of furniture and paint it a bright and vibrant color and now you’ve turned it into a statement piece that’s versatile…




say in a foyer to hold your mail, keys, scarfs, or purse. 
Or…




in an office or craft room to help you organize all of your office/craftiness supplies.
Or…










... in your family room as a stylish hideaway for your games, movies and video controllers and extra curl up blankets.






Before you give that garage sale find the once over.. pretend it to be a color. Any color. Once you do that, it hyper speeds out of the blah realm and into something out of a current Anthropologie catalog. I used Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan. The formula for this color was two parts Antibes Green and one part Florence, finished with both clear and dark wax.
