Another Pink Dresser

I always loved pink when I was a little girl,
I just had forgotten how much since I have five  boys and only one daughter.
Yes, her room was pink when she was young, but she quickly out grew that phase.
It's just since I have been painting furniture, that I have been able to add so much pink to
my creative thoughts. I am loving it!

This dresser started out with the most hideous shade of yellow stain.
I don't know if it was always that color, or the varnish had yellowed that
much over the years.

Well, here it is finished. I went with the palest shade of pink.
Actually, I mixed my own from a brighter pink I had
and added lot's of white paint.

I just painted the existing pulls ORB to update them.
I really wanted to find some sweet girly pulls, but these were like
3 and 3/4" and I was not able to find anything in that width.
I know I could have filled the holes and re drilled new ones, but I didn't realize it
until after I had painted. Next time, measure before painting!

I think it turned out very sweet, and the improvement from
the lovely yellow stain was fabulous.
I would love to hear what you think.

I am linking to the following parties:


Tickled Pink at 504 Main


  1. Yes, it turned out great! Nothing better than a pink dresser

  2. I like it. I like the pale color you chose. Very nice.

  3. I think it went from blah to wow. Love the pale pink. I too love pink and wish my kids did too. They are now away at college and am looking for old pieces myself to redo and paint white and distress them to make them look old. Then I will buy pale colored pink and green and yellow sheets and comforter set. I plan on decorating with birds and fairies and angels. A mix of things I love and fly.
    Thanks for sharing. Post like these inspire more to just do it.

  4. Such a pretty shade and this pink would work well in a variety of spaces not necessarily just for a gril's room. I'm so happy you shared it here at BeColorful this week.

  5. So sweet, Ann! You breathed new life into that little dresser and it turned out fabulous! :)

    I think it was very lovely, and the enhancement from
    the charming yellow-colored blemish was incredible.
    I would really like to listen to what you think.
