POWW 115: A Furniture Link Party

Happy Tuesday and happy POWW link party time! After a crazy busy weekend of working at the barn sale, seeing Twilight, and bingo followed by a late dinner and drinks with girlfriends (by the way, the bingo was for charity and prizes were donated by sponsors... I went with a group of 5 people and 3 won prizes.  I was not one of them, but my friend Michelle won a kindle- how awesome!), I needed to just crash.  And clean the house.  And exercise.  So after exercise and cleaning, I crashed, and crafted a bit.  I don't do the crashing, sitting totally still very well.  I am sure I will be sharing those crafts soon, but today is about furniture!!!!

I picked up this sweet corner shelf a while back for free.  It had such sweet details and I could see it used in a little girl's room, with dolls, books, and ballet slippers.  And let me apologize now because I do not have a before shot... GASP!  No!  She didn't!  Oh yes, she did.  Sorry.
Anyhow, moving on, because it had such a sweet feminine shape, I decided to go with a sweet feminine color, pink!  I sanded it and then painted it with 2 coats (and a couple touch ups) of Benjamin Moore's Aura in Dream Whip, which was left from Emmy's vanity.  Here it is on her vanity, to refresh your memory....

It's a soft shade of pink and not too cotton candy sweet.... more like strawberry ice cream sweet.  Once it was painted, I lightly distressed the edges, and waxed it with a clear wax.   Here is the after without a before!  (It's like Sonny without Cher, Scooby without Shaggy, macaroni without cheese... I know it's a crime!)




Sadly, it's been sitting in my garage since it's been painted because I just don't think it is the season for pink yet!  I may bring it to the December barn sale.... we'll see!  I do love, pink, red, and aqua vintage ornaments together! :)

Alright, your turn!  Last week you blew me away!  This week you are probably getting ready for Thanksgiving, but hopefully you have something to share!

I love the shape and soft color. How dare you jump to an "after" picture without showing us a "before". Ha. Kidding. I can picture it now, dark and ugly. You certainly made it light and pretty! Do some crashing today.

Pink is always in season in my book, very sweet! :)

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

I think pink is perfect for the sweet curvy lines! And she would make a great gift for a little girl
(or a big one). I'd definitely take her to the barn. She'll be snapped right up!

Dear Emmeline said...

Sandra@Beneath this Roof, Within these Walls said...

That is so sweet, and perfect for a little girl's room! (Maybe Emmy's, since it IS the same color as her vainity?!!) Which is so awesome in the little nook.

That shelf is so cute. I am always so inspired by your furniture makeovers, Cassie. You'd think I'd finish up a piece I started like 5 MONTHS ago seeing as I'm so smitten with your before and afters! I have too-many-projects-going-at-once-itis!

Such a cute little pink shelf! And I just had to say I have always wanted to go to Bingo. It may be kind of cheesy but it sounds like so much fun.
