Love or Hate Pink

8:50 AM

Got this great dresser, 1970's french Provencal style, with a double drawer on the bottom, original hardware, and just a couple of issues.
1)  the front had been banged and chipped with one pretty good chunk missing.
2) the laminate had been chipped off one of the back legs.

After using wood putty to re-build the missing chunk, I let it dry for about 2 hours before sanding it smooth and blending the corner all around.  I also sanded the back leg smooth so the missing laminate isn't as noticeable.

Then I pulled out the newest color from Annie Sloan Chalk Paint - Antoinette.  This is not your normal pink.  For those of you who know me, I don't do pink well but this color is different.  It's more of a shell pink and after waxing with the Annie Sloan clear and dark waxes, it 'deepens' and becomes a beautiful vintage pink.
I also rubbed off some of the paint along the top edge to expose the gold underneath.

Quite an improvement for this dresser, which is now ready for a little girl's room or guest room.
