Pink Dresser !!!

I had computer problems again yesterday - so I've been " down " since then - but am back " up " again!!!  Sorry if I haven't replied to your comments - I'm going to do my best to catch up today :)

And here I go again - changing things because they're hanging around a leetle too long for my liking!!!

Remember this?  ( you can see the transformation HERE )


Well it would seem no one else liked it as much as I did


or weren't impressed with my shabbifying this piece


and so I had no choice but to change it up a little bit



and even though I haven't had much luck with pink - I think this looks so sweet for a little girl's room


I'm not even sure how I made this color - it was in one of my " recipe " bottles - where I mix colors up when I get to the end of tins..............


but it's such a soft pretty color whatever it is


I was trying to organize a little this week - trying would be the operational word here - and came across these


They're panels from the dollar store - which I use as a privacy blind in my office ( being in a row house you absolutely need privacy blinds )


and for some reason I've never noticed the hearts in them !!!
but this dresser is meant to be in a little " sweetheart's " bedroom - and so hearts were added
using the panels as a stencil - a " subtle " touch was all I wanted



And now my fingers are crossed that someone has the perfect spot in a little girl's room for this!

Have a wonderful day all!!!

  2. Oh Suzan, it is beautiful.

    I really need to get busy painting my dresser.

    I have the paint.

    I know it would look great.

    But I am too lazy to take off all of the hardware, remove all of the clothes and be in limbo for a day or two.

  3. So sweet and pretty! I hope it sells soon for you!

  4. It is a very pretty piece. I liked it before, but I think this transformation has probably made it easier to sell.
    I like your privacy blinds, both decorative and functional.

  5. I like the color! My "little" girl is now all into neons and black/white/silver at the moment, but a few years ago she would've loved it :-) Great job, Suzan !

  14. Cute, Cute, Cute. I bet you fought with yourself whether or not to paint that middle design pink, too, didn't you? Hope some little girl's Mom falls in love with it- xo Diana

  15. That is really pretty. It would certainly look wonderful in a girl's room.

    I wondered what happened to you! Thankfully, you're back :)

  16. Haha, when I saw pink I thought bright, glaring pink! What can I say? I love this soft whisper of pink. My daughter back in her pink phase, would have loved this. It is charming and should get snapped up quickly!

  18. I would put this in my sweet little Anni's room. It's adorable, Suzan. Will your sweet little wreath go with it?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Such a soft pink and it looks great Susan. Would even be cute in a Baby's room; add a pad and have a changing table.
    Good work.

  21. Love it? How is the squirrel problem going?

  22. Like it better. We must be hanging around each other too much. I was going to paint my dresser I just bought those colors. I wasn't sure how it would sell so it is still sitting and I am still pondering!

  23. The dresser is gorgeous! I wish I was as creative as you---I would love to make something like this for my granddaughter's bedroom. And the paneling is a cool idea----perfect for a little privacy.

  24. How cute! I so wanted to do pink in my girls room but they just wouldn't go for it!

  26. Dresser is gorgeous for a little girl's room. Love the privacy blind from the Dollar Store also. May I ask what Dollar store is that, Dollar Tree? I too am in a row house and these would work too!!

  27. It's gorgeous - before and after. I'm sure some lucky little girl will love it!

  28. It looks so dainty now. I'm really picky about pinks, but that is a lovely shade. The hearts are so cute and they go with the design in the middle, which reminds me of angel wings.

    1. If I could get away with putting this in my bedroom Betsy, I would LOL
      It's a very subtle pink - barely pink is what I would call it

  31. I love PINK!! What a gorgeous dresser you have painted. Some little girl will be getting a prize! Glad your computer is back up and running. It's almost as bad as a broken down car!

  32. So sweet! Seeing results like this make me wish I had a granddaughter closer to home. We have 8 grandsons & 1 granddaughter, who lives in Edmonton with our son and his family (two older brothers...she's getting spoiled and she's not quite 2 years yet!)
    Oh well, I still love how yours turned out, Suzan.

  33. While I cannot imagine why someone did not purchase it before, I am sure some small girl will be begging for this pink chest.
