Ballerina Pink Shabby Chic

Ballerina Pink 2 Drawer Antique Painted Dresser

 

Finally a piece that would be perfect to paint using ballerina pink!  It’s the softest shade of pink but full of body from touches of brown pigment.  This 2-drawer shabby chic gem belongs in every girls bedroom.  Girls especially like the two tiny drawer space on top for hair clips, headbands, and other favorite things.  The drawers and drawer sides are lined with pages from a vintage early 50’s magazine.  It is very exciting when two estate sale discoveries come together for a super cool design.

Painting this was one of the simplest yet, now that I’ve learned to shellac before prime.  The shellac step produces a stainless clean paint color as does the prime step.  No short cuts for me.  As it is sanded for distressing I reminded myself that less is more and only the natural wear spots.

A center piece in the middle and a mirror on the wall finishes the vignette.
