Miss Plum Puts on Her Toile Dress!

Happy Wednesday Friends! Last post, I promised that we would be addressing my purple armoire.  With my recent guest room revamp, I considered repainting her....and then I reconsidered. After all of my editing, the other dark colors were gone, allowing the plum to pop in an oh so pleasing way!  Since I still had some toile left from my $1 curtain panel, I decided to show Miss Plum some love.  Time to get toiled up, Miss P!

I started by using some wrapping paper to make a pattern of the door insert I wanted to cover. You can see it already has green trim, perfect!

Next, I cut the fabric from the pattern.

Then I used a sponge brush to apply Mod Podge.  I applied enough to make sure the fabric would adhere but not so much that it would soak through.

Finally, I pressed the toile in place.  This weight of fabric is easy to reposition if needed.

The toile gives my whimsical plum armoire a touch of elegance--I am loving the combination! Have you dressed up any older pieces of furniture at your house lately? Do tell!
