I added larger appliques to all the drawers and the door, I like the way the amoire looks with the larger appliques then the smaller ones (a before picture below)

This was written in the book that I used to line the drawers with, dated 1830, wow! This page was included in the lining of the drawers.
When I first started this ~make over~ project, I wanted to paint it a differnet color, ya know, I wanted to step out of my comfort zone. Well, I did paint it a different color and when I was all done, I changed my mind and repainted it my favorite color of cottage white. I started out painting it a robin's egg blue, it did not come close to matching anything in my house. Heres the only picture I have of the robins egg blue.
I have a few more minor details to take care, like touching up the paint in few areas then a light sanding than back to my bedroom where it once was. I really like the way this turned out, don't you?
My next project will be repainting my dining room chairs. I'll keep you posted.
Make it a great weekend, Janice
