The Sophia Armoire - Custom Refinish Before & After

This armoire belongs to a wonderful friend of ours and we have talked about her before. Allison is the mother of nine! And she is AHHH-mazing! She wanted us to refinish this armoire for her little Sophia to sit next to her crib and house all of the necessities that come with being a little girl!
This has been refinished in a creamy white and lightly distressed. We kept the original outer hinges to maintain the rustic feel.

While debating on hardware we discussed these flower knobs that came from a custom refinish that we had completed for Allison's sister-in-law. She had Mike paint them to match the hinges and I think that they make the piece complete. Allison's vision for this piece was spot on. I think it is lovely.

We have recently refinished our clock that has been sitting on our stair landing for over a year waiting for its restore. About time I would say! Along with that we have a small chest, a small buffet, and a dresser hutch.

Happy Tuesday!

I saw the "Before" in my blogroll and got a little sad, because I really want to find one of these (just like the "before") for my bedroom. However, I must say, that the "after" is every bit as gorgeous. Well done, my friend! :)

So glad you showed this. A friend just gave me one of these and I was thinking about painting it white. Oodles of storage for my craft room! :)
