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.Just 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.Along 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’m planning on using this little pink piano stool in the family room for a side table. 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.
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.
