Jewelry Armoire Update – OFMP & Modern Masters to the Rescue!

#sponsored   Mom's Jewelry Armoire I've had my mom's jewelry armoire since she passed nearly 3 years ago in my walk-in closet, holding all of my essential oils and all the accessories. Yes, I have that many. What can I say. I love my oils!   It needed a change and I wanted to play with some of the many options we have these days for updating our furniture.

We got good prices and I fed my furniture flipping addiction. Many things didn't sell that day, and we watched as the auctioneer helpers tossed dozens of unpurchased items in the dumpster.
