Let Them Eat CAKE

I finally finished the pink dresser...
I feared it would be too "frou frou"
in pink and white...

So I distressed with a heavy hand
and also went heavy with the dark wax

Don't you love the crackle along the edge
with a bit of pink showing through?

The hardware is original
Painting it seemed too "precious"
and I think the patina on the metal
is a nice contradiction
to the girly choice of color

It's such a pretty, curvy dresser...
I had a VERY hard time not painting
Grey or Coco...
I even considered white...

I sanded the top to bare wood
and stained it dark, rich brown

I swear, she's smiling!


  1. LOVE it...I need something smaller...and some of the smaller I need bigger! I love your work.

  2. How did you come up with the pretty pink color? How did you get it to crackle? I love this dresser it is really beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  3. absolutely beautiful, I especially love the custom pink. Any possibility you can share the recipe on your blog?
