Pretty In Pink

Lately I seem to be buying pink things. I really don't have all the much pink in my house, but it feels fresh right now. And a little bit of soft pink just seems to feel light and summery. Here are a few of my recent thrift store finds.


While shopping for paint at Home Depot this week, I came across the new line of Martha Stewart paint. I decided to try a sample bottle of Ballet Slipper Pink. It's a really nice shade, soft and subtle. I thought maybe I'd paint a few picture frames or other small items. Instead, I painted a cute little table and it turned out to be very sweet.




Don't you love the glass knob?





And by the way, I gave this little table two coats of paint and only used about half the sample bottle, which cost less than $3.00. The paint went on smoothly and covered well. I'm headed back to try some more new colors. Thanks Martha!




Are you feeling the need for a little pink?

Can I just say to everyone that posted a comment, that I have seen this table in person and you have no idea how adorable it REALLY is. The pink is just the perfect shade. Sharon, I know you got some of Martha's other colors and can't wait to see what you do with them.

PS I like the new background
