My new favorite

If you know me, you know that I change projects frequently.  A little too frequently for my hubby's taste.  This of course means that I always have a new "favorite" whatever.  What can I say, I guess I have a short attention span?  Meet my new favorite.

Sorry for the shadows but my sweet hubby wasn't home to help me move her so I had to wrangle her myself.  This is as far as I got.  :)

She is solid but delicate at the same time.  Wouldn't she be gorgeous in a little girl's room or a romantic bedroom?

I didn't get a very good before picture because I was so excited to start working, but she was kindof beat up and some little munchkin had added their own artistic flaire thanks to Crayola.

The brass pulls were a little gaudy for me but the center of each is ceramic with delicate little flowers.  I thought they were worth salvaging so I just spray painted the brassy parts white.

Annie Sloan chalk paint is just so much fun to work with that I couldn't resist another Paris Grey project.  I did some distressing  and then applied a colored wax.  I just mixed a little wood stain with Annie Sloan clear wax and it worked great.

I love the shape of the top drawer.  It gives the piece so much character.

Isn't the faux keyhole sweet??

I think she turned out so beautiful!  Think she's as pretty as I do?  She's available!  Check out the shop tab for more info!

And here's a bonus for those who have been asking about the progress on the hoosier.  A sneak peek!

Obviously she's naked and missing her bottom but isn't that blue going to be a great surprise when you open the doors?  I can't wait to get her finished and inside.  This is one piece that I'm holding onto!
