and something pink…

Why hello there Cottage Fix crew! I’m blogging in today with another chalk paint project, this time in a lovely shade of pale pink. It’s the softest quietest shade of pink called Antoinette by Annie Sloan. I also used this color on my heirloom dresser last year and loved how it turned out. So I was sort of dying to try something in this shade of pink for downstairs. This little piano stool was the lucky winner! Grin.Cottage Fix blog - pink stool using Annie Sloan AntoinetteJust like most of my furniture painting projects, I started with two coats of chalk paint and then went in with the sander after the paint had dried. I went a little overboard with the sanding this time and ended up adding more paint in a few places before I waxed. This piece has two coats of clear wax for a pure pink color and smooth finish.Cottage Fix blog - pink painted stool and pink roses on the sun porchAlong with the pale pink roses this Antoinette painted stool is adding a dose of shabby chic goodness to our sun porch. This super feminine look is always fun for me to play around with. I must admit, the pink hue also adds a bit of warmth that’s been lacking from this space. Sometimes I get so stuck on the blue/gray side of the color wheel that I forget how much I enjoy venturing over to the other side. Such a rebel, right!

I decided to photograph it in here because I thought the pink looked so pretty against the brick floors and the family room is in need of a good tidy up. It might just find a permanent home on the sun porch though, we’ll see.cottage Fix blog - pink stool and roses on the sun porchCottage Fix blog - pale pink stool, roses, and brick floors

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I’m trying to decide on one more painting piece before I hang up my brush for a while.

    What an adorable little stool that is! I love the pink that you chose, it’s very soft and subtle:) I have some pink but, like you, I do tend toward blues and grays more. I was on a huge lavender kick for a while but may have burned myself out on that color a bit! It’s always fun to give something new life with a bit of paint tho!

    that is the perfect shade of pink! I love how you distressed it too. That is the prettiest piano stool. I’ve seen those in antique stores before and love the shape of it. That’s a good idea to use it like a little side table.

    Hi Sally, love your pictures, what a cozy cottage you live in!!!! Can I ask you where you found that gorgeous knitted cream colored throw blanket???

      Thanks so much Christine! It’s the chunky cable knit throw in ivory from last winter season Pottery Barn. There throws are really nice. I also was gifted a crochet trim throw from there for my birthday years ago that I still love. xo
