Painted Armoire...

Hi Everyone!  I'm almost ready for the Holiday Open House this weekend.  I just have a little cleaning to do and then I'll be ready.  One of the things on my to do list for the Open House was to paint the armoire in my studio.
 This is the only picture of it that I could find.  It's a nice big, heavy, pine piece that I use to store supplies in, but I hate that orange color.  I've been meaning to paint it all year and finally got it done.
 I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White and Louis Blue.
 I lightly sanded it but didn't want to reveal too much of that orange wood.
The details look great (much better in person).  And now it fits in with the studio so much better than the orange did.  How would you have painted it?

I have so much to share with you of the Studio so look for lots of pictures after this weekend.  The Studio is full and decorated for Christmas.  So if you're in the area this weekend, stop by and say hello! Thanks for stopping by.
