Pop of Pink

Ok, this was supposed to be yesterday's post. :) 

 I am head over heals for French Provincial pieces, so when my client brought this dresser (and her sister) in for me I was so happy!  She said her and her mom had stripped them.  I asked her how that was and she said, "A pain in the butt!"  I hear ya sista! 

 I love the curves-ooh la la!  These are actually for her sweet little girl, so we went with traditional white and she picked out some playful knobs that are just right for a little princess.


Call me strange, but there's just something about clean, smooth wood.  I just lalalaloooove it!  Then, why, you ask do I have to go and paint it??  I have no idea, but I imagine it's like a clean canvas for a painter. :)


Sometimes a 2D picture just does not do a 3D object justice.  She is very pretty!

Such cute knobs!  I love the pop of pink in the middle of the crystal.

I used Espresso by Rustoleum again underneath the white so there would be a nice contrast when I distressed.  I actually used a paint scraper on this one because a sanding block just smeared the brown into the white and made a sickly pink mess--blech!  Does this happen to anyone else??

I love the chippy look anyway, so it worked out. :)
