Antique Chest in Scandinavian Pink


I fell in love with this petite chest of drawers as soon as I saw it. It had already been (mostly) stripped down so it was a blank canvas. I'm not really a pink kind of girl but I had a vision for this cutie.

Before. The stripper was actually left on parts of this piece so I had to give it a good sanding before painting. I then sealed it with shellac to prevent any bleed through.

After. I used layers of Scandinavian Pink and Old White from AS to create this look. I love how the highlights give this piece a worn French feel.

The mirror was actually missing when I bought it. I decided to replace it with a homemade chalkboard instead. Details on my blog.

I added rusty cup pulls to ground all the pink.

It had a pretty oak top so I stained it dark and gave it a few coats of poly. There are a few more pics up on my blog. :)

    Absolutely gorgeous...so feminine and I WANT it. Sometimes I am afraid of color on furniture, altho I am a professional artist, lol, but I love seeing people that go with something so unique. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration.
