In the early years of my marriage we went over to England to visit my husbands Grandfather Joe who was 92. We had a great time and when our trip was over we shipped over his wardrobe to have for a keepsake. We used it for many years and then it made its way out to our garage where it has sat for many years. My husband wanted more space in the garage and wanted to get rid of the wardrobe. The finish had started to go and it needed some help. It was time for the wardrobe to have new look. I do not have a before a picture, sorry!
First I removed the doors and sanded them down and then waxed them with AS dark wax. I painted the wardrobe old world white, but decided it needed more so I mixed up a foggy blue home made chalk paint and painted the sides and part of the front. The next step was to distress and then clear wax the piece. The inside details are pretty spectacular.
