Paint Colors I Love: Annie Sloan's Blush Pink Antoinette

It took me until the very end of 2017 to pick up this color, and I can't for the life of me understand why that is! I've loved blush pink tones all year long, using it as an accent color throughout my own home. The ubiquitous 'millennial pink' shade flooded all aspects of style and design, and yet I hesitated to use it on my painted furniture.  I was waiting for the right piece to test Annie Sloan's light blush pink, Antoinette, on and when I found this pair of nightstands, I knew it was time. 

The nightstands have a beautiful Hollywood Regency vibe to them, quite delicate with their bamboo detailing and feminine lines. The nightstands were battered by a previous and quite terrible paint job, so they needed some TLC before I'd begun painting. As always, Annie Sloan's chalk paint did a phenomenal job of covering up all manner of sin on this pair, and instantly revitalized these nightstands!  I kept the drawer pulls in their painted white and it contrasts subtly against the faint pink. I finished them with a light sanding and clear wax and I think they turned out so lovely!

I find this shade incredibly versatile and imagine it will work with all sorts of design styles [traditional, rustic, farmhouse, modern]. What I'm waiting and hoping for is the right mid century piece to try Antoinette on, but for now I'll have to settle on admiring this pair of nightstands for now! I'll have them for sale soon in my shop, so keep an eye out for them or any other pieces you're on the hunt for!
