I finally got, what I affectionately call, ‘the Beast’ done.  I only call it that because it is so solid and heavy.

Duck Egg, painted with lots of texture and then clear waxed.  After that, I mixed a dark wax glaze and gave it some antiquing.  LOVE it!


It like a dresser with doors!  Tons of space inside.  I also thought it might be good as a TV stand, because it is sort of on the shorter side.  Flat screen on top, DVD player inside with tons of storage.


This one took me a long time.  I actually drew my branches out on big sheets of paper cut the exact size of the armoire.  I then traced it onto contact paper and did a practice run on a sample board. I was not happy with it.  I fine tuned it and tried again.  This time I loved it!  I think I drove everyone crazy around me as I have been strategizing for weeks on this one.  Some pieces just do that to me.  I could not be more pleased!

What do you think?  Gorgeous, right?
