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!

As always…prepped this piece using White Lightning and covered it with a single coat of BOSS in white.

The top surface (lid) and the skirt of the piece are striped in Fluff and Caviar (white and black) by Dixie Belle Paint Company

The body of the cabinet is painted in a blend of Honky Tonk Red and Barn Red.  I focused on the outer edges with Barn Red and used the brighter Honky Tonk Red in the centers of each panel. 

I introduced Coffee Bean to the legs…..deepening the color as I got closer to the feet.

I used a new damask stencil by Dixie Belle.  It was the perfect size for this armoire.  I also used a new product by Dixie Belle called Gemstone Mousse for the metallic gold paint with the stencil.  Both of these products should be available to purchase in October 2020.

***full disclosure here…..I did not apply a clear topcoat prior to applying my transfer.  This made my transfer a bit difficult to adhere…..but not impossible.  I want you to have the best experience so I need to inform you that 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.

I added depth to the corners and edges…. and brought forth the detail of the molds….using Best Dang Wax in Black.  I then added highlights with the gold Gemstone Mousse to the raised molds and feet.

I sealed this red jewelry armoire in Clear Coat Satin.

 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.
