Jewelry chests and vanities are fun pieces to refinish because they can always be over the top feminine. This jewelry armoire makeover was meant to coordinate with a set of side tables I finished last fall, without being an exact match.
Here is the romantic sister set the jewelry armoire will compliment

For this jewelry armoire makeover, I chose a base in similar blush and gray paint colors, but heavier on the Tea Rose this time. The nightstands have more Pink Champagne, which is just the slightest hint of pink.
I started by cleaning all the grime away and adding a base of a gripping primer, to help bond to this glossy wood finish. I then added 2 identical blended coats of Paint in Fluff, Pink Champagne, Tea Rose, and Hurricane Gray. Those pinks were a dream to blend if you are looking for a good color combo!
It was pretty, but bare naked! I added Silkscreen Stencils to the face and top. The Silkscreen Stencils have a fine mesh embedded in them and are lightly adhesive, so the deliver the most crisp, clean details that you can’t get with other stencils
Don’t worry, the sides got some love too with some bold gold stripes. Stripes like these don’t have to be intimidating, simply use your painters tape as a spacer to create straight, even lines!
2 coats of Satin varnish sprayed on and a custom name stencil cut with my silhouette and this piece is complete!
