I repainted this amoire for a friend and her husband.
It was originally her mother in-laws which made me nervous about painting over it. But they fell in love with it and when his mother saw it she loved it too. That made me very happy. Too add to the tropical feel of the amoire I added the dark bamboo trim. I think it frames it nicely.
I paint a lot of underwater murals but this is the first one I had painted on an amoire.
The challenge was that the mural was only on the separate panels the rest of the amoire was done in a faux finish. So I painted the mural on canvas first and then cut it to fit on the panels. It really was a fun colorful piece.
This was a fun project the grandfather had made this for his new grandbaby.
It was so big I literally sat inside of it and painted part of the story line. But they were thrilled with the results and returned with the high chair for me to paint in the same theme.
