Pink Saturday... A new pink project!


Happy Pink Saturday, all! I thought I'd share a project I dreamed up this week. I have a nice wood armoire (see below) that I've been thinking needs a makeover. I applied a whitewash stain to it a little over 5 years ago now and while I was happy with it at the time, I'm ready for a change. When I stumbled across the photo above, I suddenly knew that I wanted to paint it pink. So, using the china cabinet above as my inspiration, I'm going to paint my armoire a luscious pink and replace the knobs with something prettier. I'm thinking of trimming it out in white - though I'm not sure about that. I'm also thinking about transforming the inside with shelves - right now, jackets hang in it - so I can use it for linens. I guess we'll just have to see.
Well, I'm off to pick out pink paint chips. I will, of course, post pictures of the transformation - probably on a future Pink Saturday, so all of you can see the results.


Please be sure to stop by Beverly's place - How Sweet the Sound - for a complete list of Pink Saturday participants. Have a wonderful weekend, all!

  9. Your armoire will look wonderful painted pink. Maybe with glass knobs or white ones with pink flowers on them. Happy Pink
