Here's a shot of it set up in my bedroom.
Here's a picture of the old armoire that I had in my bedroom to show you how much cuter the new one is:
What a H-U-G-E improvement, if I do say so myself.
So here are the steps I took to make the inside look as good as the outside :
If you look closely at the inside of the armoire, there are recessed panels already inside, and I thought it would be really cute to put fabric covered panels inside. So I went to the grocery store and collected cardboard boxes, cut them to size, and used masking tape to attach the fabric to the panels. I found a really cute sage green and beige striped fabic at Fabricland- it almost looks like a vintage ticking fabric.
Next, I hot glued the panels to the recessed areas in the armoire.
I also added a fabric covered board to the bottom drawer:
For the front door, I bought a piece of foam- core, wrapped it in felt, and then wrapped the fabric around that. I hot-glued this to the upper inside portion of the door, and put another fabric covered panel to the lower portion of the door. Then I used decorative upholstery tacks to the edges for extra hold, and a more decorative touch. I'm going to hang my long chains and dangly earrings on this panel.
I added a Shabby Chic white mirror to the inside of the door as well. I already had the mirror, and I think it looks cute tied with a fabric bow.
The armoire already had a hanging bar, but I added two shelves that I had cut to size from 1/4 inch MDF board that I painted .
I'm storing all my accessories in this armoire,and I still have tons of room left. Now I can actually get to all my different purses without having to pull a big box out from under my bed.
The bottom drawer is for my "jammies".
And finally, I couldn't resist a few "glamour" shots that I styled with some of my jewellery.
These are some of my faux pearl pieces.
This is my wedding jewellery.
This is my spa bathrobe that I made with 100% cotton waffle weave fabric, and a contrasting piping trim. I'll be doing a more detailed posting on this soon, so be sure to check back for that.
Well that's it for this baby- I hope you enjoyed reading about it as much as I enjoyed creating and posting about it. Until next time- Au Revoir.
