When I picked up the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Antoinette I wasn’t 100% convinced on the colour, you might have already worked out that I’m usually a blue / green girl! But I really wanted to give something new a try, and Antoinette just seemed the right choice. It’s not a lolly or candy pink by any means; more a dusty soft pink. It makes me think of a beautifully romantic nursery or girls bedroom, full of lovely textured pieces. My gorgeous girl isn’t a big fan of pink (ok she hates it, she’s a yellow girl!) so I grabbed the chance to try it out on this beautiful dresser, knowing that I would find the perfect new family for her.
The dresser was passed on to me by the lovely Ljae from Little Monkey Moos. In my local area there are some lovely artisans I’ve come to know, all through picking up a paint brush five or so years ago. When Ljae offered me the dresser I jumped at it, those lovely little legs said feminine dresser to me, and the drawer pulls were just perfect.
I toyed with leaving the pulls in their original state, but in the end decided to give them a coat of Paris Grey as I love the colour combination.
I was having a hard time finding light in my house this week – everywhere seems to be full of shadows with the beginning of Winter. And keeping warm was a challenge out in the workshop / garage!! Here’s hoping for a few warm days over the weekend!
The Antoinette dresser and chalkboard are both listed for sale here.
