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.

Miss Mustard Seed's Tricycle

I just finished up another project with Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Tricycle.  I finally did a piece that got some awesome chipping.  I kept doing pieces that had a lot of grain and were somewhat dry.  Therefore, no chipping.  This was a fun, quick makeover.  This is an old telephone chair.  Or, I think they are also called gossip chairs.   Here's what she looked like before.  It actually looks better in this picture than it did in real life.

I painted two coats of Tricycle and then scraped away all the chipping.  Once that was done, I applied the Miss Mustard Seed's Furniture Wax.  And Voila, here she is in all her chippy goodness.

Well, there it is, short and sweet.  What do you think?

By the way I have received my Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint shipment and am ready to take your orders!
