Pink Peonies...


I decided to paint the Empress Dresser...
it has great lines
with very little detail
EXACTLY what I wanted
for this vibrant color


Mixing up an elegant Hot Pink
took a bit more effort
than one might think...
A drop of white to red, right?
Sure, if you want bubble gum...
I wanted
richness,
depth,
sophistication...

You get the idea!

This old girl had been separated from her mirror
long before I acquired her
She needed a new one, don't you agree?
It's also solid wood
and very old

I think they are perfect together...
the ornate mirror
plays off
the simple curves of the dresser


I can visualize this in so many areas
of a home

Imagine this in an entry way
or as a side table in your boudoir...


In case you missed it, here she was "before"
this is actually a fairly flattering pic
because up close, it wasn't pretty!

I think she went from
girl-next-door
to
BOMBSHELL
