Found It!

Hope everybody's weekend has gone well! Ours has been semi busy. We ran lots of errands yesterday and then I came home and got busy on my next project! What is it you may be wondering?
 Lucille sold back before Christmas and so I have been on the hunt ever since for my next piece and yesterday morning I found it! Meet Antoinette! To be honest I was not thinking I would be buying her. I thought from the pics she was MDF but when I went to look at her and saw that she was solid wood and in like new condition as far as construction goes thus I had no issues with paying the price they were asking.

Just look at her lines!

Her hardware is gorgeous!

I was super excited about getting her home! It took two trips because she was so heavy! The first trip I just brought all the drawers home and then we went back for the dresser itself. She is so long that since the boys were with us we had to ride home with the lift gate open. Once home I got straight to work and busted out my CeCe Caldwell paint in Vintage White! For those who have not heard about CeCe Caldwell paint it is a paint made from CLAY & CHALK. 
Here is Antoinette after two coats of Vintage White! Now I am trying to decide on what other color I want to use. I keep going back and fourth between grey, my new Smokey Mountain Blue, or a green.  

I hopped over to Annie's site to look at colors and look at this gorgeous pink that will be out very soon! And guess what it is called!? Antoinette! I took it as a sign!! Not sure I can wait though for it to hit the stockiest. We shall see.

I am also in the middle of working on this piece that I have had for quite some time.

What have y'all been up to?

Linking up to Metamorphosis Mondays!

  3. Oooh la la! Antoinette is quite the beauty, Pamela! I have a dresser with similar lines that I'm hoping to pick up paint for this week. Is the price on the other paint comparable to the ASCP?

  5. Your new dresser is a beauty. I would love it if you would do a post on difference between Annie and CeCe paints. Your the only person that I know that has used both.
    Can't wait to see what color you choose.

  7. The pink is lovely. If you don't want to wait, you can mix your own chalk paint. You can google the recipe. The dresser will be beautiful.

  16. Pamela, I love Ce Ce Caldwell's too! I just painted a clock with it and I loved it! I think the Ce Ce and AS paints are a nice compliment to each other. Do you spray, roll of brush when you paint large pieces? I love what you've done with this piece. I can't wait to see it finished.
