This old jewelry armoire of mine was getting beaten up pretty badly and I knew it was time for a total makeover. 

I moved it into my foyer to prep for painting. It was beaten up pretty badly from daily use, and I knew some paint would save it and I’d fall in love with it all over again.

So, my journey began and I painted it black and white. At the time, I really liked it and thought it blended well with my existing decor – sadly, a few months later, I realized it needed a pop of color!

Their brushes are a dream to work with and easy to clean. I love this round medium brush I got from Dixie Belle. And, this Paint Brush Set is incredible!

I was so happy when I saw ONE COAT was actually covering that black milk paint.

After painting, I decided to add some Dixie Belle Gator Hide protective finish to it especially since I seem to beat this piece daily. It protects and waterproofs all furniture and is great for tables, cabinets, and countertops!

  1. The blue is a beautiful pop of color. I can see why you are so happy with your cheery new jewerly case. It’s a great new addition to your bedroom. And let us know how the Gator Hide holds up. It sounds amazing. Congrats on a great makeover.

  2. Thanks much Susie. It’s amazing how color is such a game changer. I love that Gator Hide. I’m super happy I got a large one. I have other pieces I can’t wait to use it on. I have to check and see if they make it in a matte finish. Have a wonderful rest of the weekend my friend.
