Armoire Door Update










Here is our tv armoire. I was trying to figure out something to do to make the doors stand out a little bit but keep it subtle.  



I thought I would try paintable wallpaper.  It would give some texture to the door.   Terry cut pieces to fit the inside of door panels.

This was before he trimmed the piece inside the frame on the door.
   
You can see the pattern here up close before painting it white.

We are having a very gloomy dark snow day so it was hard to get a bright picture but you can see that it gave the doors a little more character than they had.

Then Terry said to me "hey what about if I use some of the left over wallpaper and do the inside of the doors".  I said go for it.  



It looked good on the inside of the door too.  The beauty of this DIY is if you do not like the paper you can always pull it off.

I want to buy maybe a flower spray or some kind of seasonal decoration to hang on the doors.
We got a lot of snow and another snow storm is on it's way this weekend.  Winter is really coming in full force now.
Just hate these days without sunshine.  The snow is pretty but I need some sun!  Have a great rest of the week.

  2. I love the way the armoire came out with the pretty wallpaper. You and Terry are so creative and always make everything look even better. We got about 1 inch on snow today. I too love the sunny winter days. Take care and stay warm.

  3. That's perfect!! I have that paper. I was going to use it in my bathroom, but then stenciled the wall instead. I still couldn't return the paper, too pretty. I've been toying with the idea of adding it to the back of my bookshelf, but now I'm considering your idea instead. Love it!! xo

  4. Hm....Great idea, I love that paper, I will probably use some in our extra bedroom when we redo the floors. Maybe try a sample of your paper(painted) white and then a thinned wash of your wall color on the sample.

  6. Wow just amazing that adding wallpaper to the panels can have that much of an impact. Just that small detail really made a difference. It's a beautiful piece of furniture but now those door panels really stand out. Beautiful!

  9. Perfect Kris, I still love textured wallpaper.

    Funny, I wish we'd get one more big snowstorm. You get hit every year. Not NJ anymore.

    Hugs,

  10. Perfect! Subtle yet beautiful with just the right texture. I just knew that you would come up with a smashing idea. Terry's idea to use it on the inside of the doors finished it off just right. xoxo

  11. That adds just the right touch of character! Love it! After a week of rain and clouds, we are finally getting some sunshine! I can relate to missing it. Looking forward to Spring and flowers! Hope you have a good week.

  19. I like it Kris, the texture is just what it needed I think.
    No snow here. We have sun, but we also have cold! - 5 degrees this morning and it is 6 right now as I type this note to you.

  20. Great look Kris, it is perfect to add some interest and texture. First I thought it was those tins. Texture is so easy to add and it looks fabulous. xoxo

  21. I love the way that you and Terri work together on projects.

  22. I love the texture of the wallpaper. It really is an upgrade, and having it inside makes it fun for when you're watching TV!!! I hear you about the weather. We had severe storms and tornadoes earlier in the week, and it's still gray and ugly. I'm tempted to paint my house highlighter yellow, LOL!

  23. It looks great Kris! Love that design. This gave me an idea for a big hutch we have where the inside door panel on one side as been scratched by our cat! she jumps up on top where her "bed" (quilts) is.. and in doing so, has scratched one area. I was trying to figure out what to do other than paint the entire thing! This gives me an idea.... hum.m.m.m.m. but our hutch is a wood brown..have always wanted to paint it white but just seems like too daunting of a project for me. Hugs.. Marilyn

  25. Nice idea! I like the textured paper idea.

  26. So perfect, Kris. subtle but with some wonderful texture and interest! it really enhances the armoire. Now I'm wanting to try that in some bookshelves. I understand about the dreary cold days. That's what's happening here. Snow, gray, gloomy, cold. blah. xoxo

  27. Love, love, love what you did with these door panels! Paintable wallpaper is genius! Looks just like vintage ceiling tile! Well, at least today is sunny, right? Stay warm. xo Kathleen

  29. What a nice idea! Turned out great! We got a bit of snow but not much. We had some sun yesterday for a few hours. I’m with you about the sun!

  30. Kris, Chip and Jo got nothing on you and Terry. :) I like the bit of interest to the door. I also enjoyed seeing the handles close up. Oh this weather...ready for spring. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, Susie

  31. You two make the best team. That looks amazing. You know another idea would be to maybe take a light version of the color of that sage plant (lower right) and paint where there is the wallpaper to really show that texture and bring it into that space.

    Though I love all the white too - so crisp and clean and stunning. Hugs.

  32. Ohhhh like that idea. I've been thinking about doing that on our door panels. They are broken (cracked) on the panels in the door. Maybe that would fix the problem without replacing them. We live in a 100+ year old house and would have to find old doors. We have 4 in our dining room. I may try this. Thanks for the inspiration. Sue
