I have painted many jewelry armoires over the years but it's been a while since the last. I really enjoyed working on a piece this size and I have a feeling you will see a few more in the near future! For now, check out this red jewelry armoire with a splash of whimsy!
Start with the Prep
Red Jewelry Armoire Design
I introduced Coffee Bean to the legs.....deepening the color as I got closer to the feet.
Dixie Belle has a variety of design transfers you can choose from and create your own work of art. Check out the possibilities HERE!
PRO TIP: It is recommended to apply a clear coat and let dry overnight before applying your transfer.
I applied two Dixie Belle exclusive Wood U Bend molds using Tite Bond glue and a quick heat set with my heat gun one at the top and one at the bottom. These molds are so easy to FAST and EASY to apply and they are WOOD! They are not epoxy or rubber or clay. They are wood....adding an authentic look to your finish.
Adding Depth to Corners & Edges
I sealed this red jewelry armoire in Clear Coat Satin.
The Final Look
I haven't used red, black and white together in a very long time....maybe almost two years! I love the power that these three colors suggest when used together.
I think my next one will be done in a soft and romantic color palette!
I'm hoping the smaller size of the jewelry armoires will inspire you to give this whole furniture painting thing a try!
P.S. I couldn't resist adding this photo... aren't these two the cutest?? They were "helping" me stage and photograph...
Don't miss out on some other jewelry armoire designs like this painted jewelry armoire or this Bombay jewelry box that belonged to my mother.
