Painted Laminate Armoire
jmarae
September 19, 2012 in Before & After
Start by lightly hand sanding the laminate. You only want to rough up the finish a bit. Wipe down all dust particles and apply a primer. It is extremely important that the primer is
100 % dry before painting. I disassembled the armoire before painting as well. I brought the doors to a glass and mirror store and had a very thin mirror glued to the inner panels. Lastly I replaced all the hardware including the hinges. The before picture is from a catalog but is exactly what this piece looked like.hardware and all.

Great job. What is the metallic looking paint that you used? Curious if you removed the feet and if so, your thinking on that issue?

The paint is from Home Depot. I brought in silver metallic to match. Use a roller to apply. I removed the feet to give the unit a more contemporary look.
