The Pink Lady


I'll have to admit, when my customer asked me to paint this desk pink, I wasn't feeling it.  It just seemed like such an elegant desk to be pink.  Of course I had a "Pepto Bismol" pink in my mind.

She actually sent me a picture of what she wanted and I got some sample cards to make the choice from. When I found out she would be sharing an office with her husband, I suggested Annie Sloan's Antoinette.  It is such a subtle pink, I thought it would be a good compromise to make them both happy.

The desk had this one spot that needed a little doctoring.





I had this piece of decorative wood for a stair step lying around and thought it might cover up the problem.  I popped off the swirly part, and cut out a piece that looks similar to the missing one.  Then I just wood glued it in place.  I figured once it was painted, it would blend close enough.
























OK.  Enough with the suspense.  Here's the Pink Lady in all her glory.










And here's one last look along with her chair......




What do you think?  

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Blessings!

Oh wow - I wish I had a little granddaughter I could paint a desk like this for! Beautiful - so princess like! I'm sure your clients were thrilled! And thanks for sharing how you solved the problem of the missing embellishment! Great idea to use just a 'part' of another embellishment! If I had thought of that it would have saved me lots of time - I've been 'molding' missing parts out of wood putty! LOL!
