Meet Antoinette

 Meet Antoinette....
 I figured that would be a good name to call her since it's the color of the paint I used. I know I know real original LOL!
 Santa brought my youngest daughter Victoria a 20 in. flat screen tv for her room, and she has been waiting patiently(NOT) for mommy to find the perfect table to put it on. I found nothing that I liked so I was just going to buy a skirt and table from Ballard...until I remembered this little table I had in our storage room holding our fax/copier.
Here's the Before...
Much cuter now...don't ya think?





 I did a layered wash on all the beadboard panels using Annie Sloan's Antoinette, Old White and the original color of the cabinet too. I know this look isn't for everyone, but I love it. On this part I just used the clear wax.
Added these fun knobs I found in Hobby Lobby.

Now we have one very excited young girl :)

We had a few gorgeous days last week so I took that opportunity and painted outside...glad I did because it's cold again!!!

Very pretty, Martina, and a nice makeover! I like it best when makeovers come from things we already have. It's like getting a brand new piece with a coat of paint.

This is gorgeous. I have a desk that I've been hanging on to to paint and this color might just be perfect. Isn't Hobby Lobby the best place for knobs and hooks?!Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. I'm really enjoying yours ;)

I like the new color on the dresser. I really like the drawer knobs, they are perfect for a girl’s room. The drawer was completely transformed and thanks for the before and after photos to show the full effect. It was a smart choice as the television fits very well.
