Pretty in Pink!

As promised, I am back today to show you my latest makeover.  Quite a few months back I purchased two of these cute little dressers.  This was the smaller of the two...the first one I repainted for a second guest room.  Yep, it's done, but you can't see it yet!

Anyhoo, this is the smaller one.  I did not have a plan for either one when I bought them, I just got them for a good price and I loved the look of them.  If you remember, they originally came from Home Goods...I purchased them at some other sale.  I don't think they had ever been used, but they had been knocked around a bit and had a few little flaws.

Melissa decided that the smaller one would look cute in the baby's room, so off to Lowe's I went.  Once again, I was inspired by a dresser I had seen on Pinterest.  I picked out my color swatch and ran with it...well, not literally...I just told the girl behind the counter what I needed.  And this is what I got:



In case you haven't seen them, this is the latest packaging for Lowe's color samples.  If I didn't know better, I would say they were designed just for us girls!  I mean seriously, how cute are they?  FYI, for all of you that don't know...these little containers are the perfect size for a lot of different projects!  They cost less than $3 and they come in a Satin finish.  They will mix them for you in any Valspar color...good to know, right?  I also check their "oooops" table regularly, because you will usually find them on there as well, and they are only $1.25...such a deal!

Now where was I?  Oh yeah, you are probably waiting to see what I did with the four different colors of paint, right?

One more before:



And here is what she looks like now:




Whatch'a think?  Cute, huh?  

I took one color swatch and had the girl mix me one jar of each color (two of the darkest color, which I didn't end up even needing).  For the fourth color, she just mixed the lightest shade at 50% and VOILA!  BTW, I love that my Lowes has some girls behind the counter...they just get it!  I don't think any of the guys would have been as happy to fulfill my request.  Just sayin'...
I LOVE how it turned out...hopefully Melissa will too!

I should have lots to show you in the coming days.  Busy with cookie orders and another makeover project to share.  Remember this little beast:



You won't even recognize her!
Till then...happy baking and "remaking"!
