French Armoire/Display Cabinet

A beautifully ornate and spacious display cabinet perfect for bathroom or linen storage. The cabinet is composed of solid Pine with glazed panels to three sides. The door has a decorative lock and a functional key. The top is ornately carved with a floral and scroll decal and corbels to each side of the door. Originally, the cabinet was lime waxed and quite dated.

After removing the wax, I sanded and cleaned before priming the surface with Zinsser Bin primer to prevent the knots bleeding through. I then applied three coats of Frenchic paint in a shade called Hornblower blue, a deep, rich indigo blue. To create further age and depth, I added black glaze before finally protecting the finish with Polyvine flat matt wax varnish. The interior was also primed and then given three coats of Frenchic paint in a shade called Salt of the Earth, a neutral raw linen colour.

This was then sealed and protected with Polyvine as before. The decorative brass hardware was finally brightened with gold metal paint to refresh.
