[Project Notebook] Painted Armoire

So, you know that I am always thinking about what I can change around and update in our home.
 
One room that I have been gradually tweaking is our master bedroom. I love the armoire that my husband has in lieu of a dresser, but years of it being placed near a window has turned it from a dark wood to pretty much orange.
 
I'm thinking...of...maybe later this summer...painting it. Of course he completely does not know this yet, but I can still plan it all out.
 
I have a couple of bold textiles in our room (rug and quilt) so I would like to keep the armoire really simple and timeless. Right now I am thinking of painting it a creamy white and using black milk glass knobs (here) to tie in with the black in our silhouette gallery wall and to give it a more masculine feel.
 
Here are some inspiration pictures (of course I added in an aqua one since that is my fav color)...

And here is a (not so good) picture of the armoire, as is, from last fall...
 
 
 
What do you all think?
