Pinky

Over the weekend, I finally finished a new piece.  Between getting my wallet stolen, mice/rats in our attic, my birthday this past week, it has been hectic.  Yes, that's right I had a birthday.  It was lovely, mom took me shopping, I received flowers from my love, and friends and family came 'round to celebrate. 

So on to the desk...
I bought this sweet, little desk at an estate sale several weeks ago.  It sat waiting patiently in my carport, until I finally got a vision.  I pictured it soft, sweet and pink.  Perfect for a little girl's room.

I used my own mix of white and red, to get a soft, delicate pink.
I'm sorry I can't always tell you the name of a paint color, it's just cheaper to buy "oops" paints and mix them myself.
Isn't it so cute?  I really hope someone buys this for their little girl.  The whole time I was painting it, I pictured her sitting there doing homework.

I also really love the original hardware.  I have never seen any like them, with the lattice work in the middle.
I cleaned them up and sprayed them with my go to can of-oil rubbed bronze.



(Just realized I need to fill that little hole, bottom left...)

  9. It looks great. I am thinking of doing some girlie pink in some furniture I do for after Christmas. I do whites and grays and I think pink and a ligt blue/green will complement it well.
