A Sweet Pink Vanity

A few months ago I bought this adorable desk/ vanity from another dealer who was clearancing it out.  It almost seemed a sin to paint over this beautiful maple, but it had so much potential if I did.

The two features I fell in love with on this piece, were the knobs and the twisted trim.
 It always amazes me how much a few little details can really make a piece.

So, here is the finished product. I wanted the palest pink I could find, and yet I already had
so many pinks that I hated to go buy another one. With enough white paint
added in I was able to mix my own and come up with the perfect shade.

Some mild distressing to give it that vintage look.

I really love the style of the mirror.

How perfect would this look in a girls room?
If you live in Kansas City, check it out at Lone Elm Antique Mall in Olathe.
