My lovely mother-in-law gave me this armoir for our guest room. The “before” picture was a nothing-special, oak piece with plane jane knobs, but I had bigger and better plans for it (kicking myself for not taking pics).
I painted it aqua to match accent wallpaper covering two walls in the room (Lowes did a color match by scanning a piece of the wallpaper- how cool), replaced the plane janes with ceramic rabbit knobs I found on clearance at Anthroplogie, and voila. Here’s a look of what lives inside…

My mom bought me this snow globe months before the Twin Towers were hit- you can see them in the right hand corner of the globe. One morning while rushing to get to work, I knocked it off the shelf and shattered it. To my surprise, there are people out there who specialize in snow globe repair. So off it went, and after paying triple what she originally bought it for, it was back together again.
