pink paint

pink paint a

Happy New Year! I am so excited about 2011. I think it is going to be a great year – I don't know why, I just do! I spent this second day of our new year painting my built in wardrobe, the doors and the walls and the shelves. They were manky chip board and white paint – dull dull dull. Now they are this beautiful shade of pink! And when everything is dry I will show you the end result. Kisses!

And yes, I did take the very painty cup away when I finished ;)

Lady Cherry said...

I have a great feeling about this year too, despite all the doom mongers :-) lovely colour, looking forward to seeing it finished. I am still feeling very lazy at the moment! x

perfection....i bet it's going to look amazing!

Trixi said...

Every girl's built in wardrobe should be in that colour.
Happy New Year!

Jen said...

Oh, I love that shade! When I was 17 I painted my teenage bedroom that exact shade, with white beams and white cupboards. It still looks so fresh and charming. x

Saving Capulet said...

I completely agree! 2011 is going to be amazing and I love that delicate shade <3

‪Beth ⚓‬ : thanks! I think it is, I just wish I'd been able to do it before now… still, it's done now! Hooray! You too for 2011! x

‪wallflower‬ : what a beautiful pic! Love your hair colour! It is called Coral Bells from Bristol paints (low sheen acrylic – washes off with water. This is very important for enthusiastic painters like me hehe)

‪Lady Cherry‬ my 2010 had enough doom and gloom and it feels like it's over now:) Enjoy your lazy – it's the best feeling! x

‪vintageveggie‬ : and it's genuine optimism! I can't stand excessively cheery people, but too much negativity is killer. I really do feel good about this year, glad you are too! :D

‪Some Style...‬ : so far so good – I am painting the top bit now – nearly done! Haha once I have a paint brush in my hand it's hard to stop me! I love painting things! :D

‪Trixi‬ : haha yes! It's reminding me of the rooms in Les Parapluie de Cherbourg :)

‪Jen‬ sounds lovely! I think any age can enjoy pink :) which is good because I was 17 quite a long time ago!

‪Saving Capulet‬ : yes! It's a great shade and it is making my pale pink walls look white… I am looking forward to painting the living room green next :)

‪Tere‬ : thanks! You too!

‪minnja‬ : thanks! Ooh, gorgeous kitteh!

Fab colour - this year is certainly going to be festooned in pink, pink, pink, I think. From Pantone's colour of the year, Honeysuckle, to these lovely creamy almost Edwardian shades it is just the right mood for everyone's senses. Look forward to the finished pics.

Andi B. Goode said...

Yay. I remember you saying you were going to do this. It's a very pretty shade. =D

I used to have a dressing table in this colour when I was a little girl. I love it, such a soft, soft pink. You've inspired me to buy this 2nd hand mirror from the Salvos that I've had my eye on and paint the frame, I don't know what colour to do yet though!

I love all pinks. Happy New Year to you and I cant' believe I"ve made so many comments on here today. So many great posts and photos. I too, feel that 2011 will be a more settled year for a lot of people. xx
