Cup cake left out in the rain...........

I wanted to change the dresser so it became stark wedding cake white......and looked okay......

...........but then I found a tin of soft rose pink paint so now I am adding it as a sparse colour wash.......

I have just stopped to take a photograph as whilst the paint is wet it is looking like a pink iced cup cake that has been left out in the rain!

I`ll see how it looks when it dries. I want a very very soft hue of pink over the white. If it looks too strong it may be white again pretty soon!!

I am having a slight " what have I done?" moment!!

Looking at it now I can see where this " moment" has come from. I was reading  the latest edition of" Maison Romantique" yesterday that had a wonderful mannequin in a iced pink tutu that I couldn't get it out of my mind,

I shall keep you posted!

  1. The dresser is gorgeous!!! I can't see the pink but I know what you mean.Sometimes instead of using a brush if you use watered down paint and use a thick cloth rub a lil on and rub a lil off you may get the look you are after.Happy Painting!

  2. Love the dresser. Pretty in pink.
