I couldn't decide. Should she be turquoise or celery green.
Okay, after just a bit of sanding, I painted the entire piece black. But, I still wasn't sure what color she should be for the next few years.
Then, after looking at that gorgeous old hardware again, I finally decided.
Click below to see her new color.
Then, with my lil MOUSE, I gave her a reeeeeally good sanding.......especially around the edges.
After dusting er off, take an old or cheap brush and brush on Minwax Special Walnut. I always work in small areas. Almost as quickly as I brush it on, I wipe it off, using a paper towel or soft cloth.
Oh, and I always multi-task. Painted those two concrete leaves bright green while I was waiting for the pink paint to dry. Then they'll be ready to stain/antique at the same time I antique the dresser.
A little masking tape around the mirror saves cleanup..............soooo, I actually taped this piece. I don't usually take the extra time and have to use a razor blade to get the paint off the mirror. 8-/
So, here's the mirror AND the leaves AFTER they've been antiqued.......
and................a drawer after antiquing, and hardware put back on. I loved it just as it was, showing it's age, so I didn't do a thing to it.
Here you can see the black shining through and the sheen of the finish left from the Minwax.
Reattach the mirror,
And, here she is, all girly whirly PINK. Add some black accents and I think she is adorable.
What cha think?
Hope to see All Ya'll back here soon. 8-)
