Pretty in pink!

This little piece was something I picked up from someone online. It seemed it like it would be an easy project but as I started working on it I realized it was not quite so simple. It was handed down within their family for several years and although she hated to get rid of it they were moving and couldn't take everything. I got into working on this piece and soon came to realize every person that had this piece in their possession had to have added another layer of paint, to suit their tastes or their decor. After laboring long and hard to get down to the root of this piece it revealed there was beautiful wood! I decided to savor the original beauty by keeping the top stained and the top drawer strained. It ended up being a cute piece done up in a custom mixed color of Dixie Belle paint. I paired it with a mirror and it ended up being a nice little pair!

  1. Nicely done, I have a similar piece from my family. I did the same sort of thing.
