By now, you may have heard that one of Pantone’s colors of the year is Rose Quartz. It’s a lovely soft and sophisticated pink, and works quite well as a neutral. I thought the subtle pink shade would be perfect for this sweet vintage dresser I picked up.
It’s very similar in style to a dresser I refinished last summer. You can see that one here. This time, I decided to go in a very different direction.
I sanded the entire dresser, cleaned and then primed it. I knew I was going to be going with a light color, so priming would reduce the number of coats. I then mixed up a custom blush pink using General Finishes milk paint in Antique White and Coral Crush. I only used a small splash of the coral crush since I wanted a very soft and creamy pink.
I applied 4 light coats, sanding between coats, and then sealed up the entire piece with General Finishes high performance topcoat in flat.
I added mother of pearl knobs that I picked up from World Market.
I lined the drawers with a black and cream floral drawer liner as a finishing touch.
Thanks for stopping by. Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy Spring!
