Deep Navy Blue Painted Wardrobe

Megan from Lubbly Jubbly Furniture took a dated wardrobe and made it look new again by adding some feet and painting it with the color “Peacoat” and Clear Coat. Come read her story about the transformation!

Hello everyone!

At the moment we have a snow storm happening. I feel winter has come a little too early this year for my liking. I thought I’d write about the wardrobe I painted and refinished in this past month using Country Chic Paint’s color, Peacoat.

This wardrobe needed some love and a good makeover, not to mention legs. I had to add legs to this piece to give it some sass and character, along with a little height.

First off, I lightly sanded the whole piece and cleaned it using a vinegar solution. I primed this piece with grey primer, but priming with a dark colour like this isn’t always needed. It really depends on the piece your painting whether you feel it needs some extra grip.

I then painted the wardrobe two coats of Peacoat.

I tipped the wardrobe on to its back so that I could work on  the legs. I had painted the legs in Peacoat and sealed them while they were off.

I made a platform for each corner and nailed them on. I used the plates that the legs came with to secure the legs. Once they were on I stood the wardrobe upright and sprayed it with two coats of Country Chic Paint’s Clear Coat. I had already repainted the original hardware with Peacoat, so it was just a matter of reattaching them, and the piece was finished!
