Sweet Pink Dresser

Happy Friday!  This poor dresser has been sitting here finished for a week and waiting for someone to shoot a photo of her.  Ahem, that someone would be me, who has been slightly distracted by lots of other projects and plans. 

This dresser was just such a pretty little petite piece that I think it almost begged me to keep her sweet and girly. 
Pretty little feet, scrolly little backboard = Antoinette Chalk paint in my my little world anyway!

I ended up basing it in Old White and then distressing the pink coat back to reveal both the white and wood.
The top stayed dark with a new coat of Jacobean by Minwax and several coats of poly.  I should add that I used both light and dark wax to get the look I was after. 
Totally sweet for a young girls room don't you think?  She would pair well with Hard Candy Christmas.
I hope this day finds you sitting in sunshine and full of Love and Hope!


  1. it's so pretty!!! i love the dark top paired with the pink!

  2. Very pretty, Deb! I'm hoping to find a piece that I can try Antoinette out on.

  3. Beautiful makeover!!! Just love Antoinette

  4. That dresser could go in any room in the house... Really, it's more than just a girly bedroom. It's sweet!

  5. WOW! She's beautiful!! You did a wonderful job - the colors are really striking. Can't wait to see what else you've been up to. :)

  6. Hi Deb, LOVE the contrast of the dark stain with the feminine color on this dresser. The combination of the two really make a neat statement ~ great job!!

  7. Love it. I've always stayed away from Pink...but this may change my mind :) I've nominated you for the "one lovely blog" award :)

  8. Oh, that dresser is very charming! The color scheme made me imagine my favorite choco-strawberry cupcake with cream on top. Yum, yum! ^___^ Anyway, I think every little girl would love this sweet confection.
