Sweet Innocence...


 That's exactly what I thought when I got her all "purdied" up for her picture. She belongs in some sweet little girls room for sure!  I found her at an estate sale back in December BUT, for what ever reason..I never got around to her.Well, with the coming out of Annie Sloan's newest colour "Antoinette" coming..my rock star stockist Debbie, from Round the coop gave me a sample pot before it hit the shelves! 
Woohooooo! I knew EXACTLY which piece I wanted to try her out on. 

*Oh! P.S...
  YES one sample pot did this WHOLE desk..2 coats as a matter of fact..I WILL be ordering the quart size of this soon, I really love the color..It looks very nude out of the can BUT when it dries and is waxed it's the perfect antique looking Pink!


OK, enough blah blah blah......let's get to it!


Here she is after giving her a good clean up...



And HERE she is looking like a ROACH in my kitchen..waiting for paint!



1st coat applied, and ready for round two!


2nd coat applied, waxed & some light distressing done already...
I used "Pure White" from ASCP to accent her "spindely" legs


You know I had to dark wax her up!!

The original pulls were nice but I thought some reproduction bakelite ones would be soooo much more girly!

I dark waxed her and chipped her well into the night...and come sun up we have sweet little "Marie"











Look at all those little wood casters..8 of um'! swoon



Thanks for checkin' out my gurl!
Happy Painting everybody 

Muah!
