A Gorgeous Pink Campaign Styled Dresser

It's been awhile since I've shared a post here.  Life has taken me away from my blog (we sold and bought a new home!), but hopefully I'll get back into the groove of sharing some reloves!

A good friend found this campaign styled dresser and asked if I would paint it for her....


I agreed to paint it on one condition:  She was to take the hardware off!  She agreed and so began the process.  She wanted a pink and after having fun mixing different paints, we decided a 50/50 mix of General Finishes Holiday Red: Snow White was the perfect color!  

My first step was to test all of the drawers to make sure they moved in and out easily.  A few needed some sanding, but for the most part they were in good condition.  I finished the prep (sanding, cleaning, filling gauges with wood filler, etc) and then restored the hardware to it's former glory!


Several coats of the custom color, along with lots of sanding in between coats...and then several more coats of General Finishes High Performance Gloss to complete the project!



I just completed a gorgeous night stand in Lamp Black, and thought both pieces together looked so glamorous!


I had so much fun staging this piece.  My friend has some amazing art that she brought over for the 'photo shoot'!  


The original brass hardware cleaned up beautifully and looks stunning against the vibrant pink!



The dresser made it to it's new home and I love how Tamy has accessorized it....very Palm Beach style with the two black laquered Chinese Chippendale chairs!  Ooohlala!


Thanks for stopping by!
