Decorating my favorite room, Part II

After reading your comments on an earlier POST about my desire to paint this little dresser you see here, I debated for a while over paint color. What color should I choose? So many possibilities.

I didn't want my girly room looking too sweet or extra syrupy, but… well, you know me and you know how I adore pastels, and then there are pinks; the lightest and yummiest of pinks... So, yes, I end up choosing white and pink!

As sweet as it can be. Pink in its lighter tints it's delicate and serene...

I’ve always loved the old fashioned roses color of Annie Sloan’s Antoinette. If you don't know what this color looks like think about soft pale pink with a hint of brown in it so the pink is not too sweet. It’s a lovely color, but I must be the last person in the world too frugal to purchase the Annie Sloan paint. I just can’t justify spending that much money on paint. You can imagine how excited I was to have discovered this post here. The owner of this blog spent hours researching colors and came up with an almost exact match for each of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint’s shades. Can you believe it! How wonderful and thoughtful of her! I immediately went to Home Depot for some Behr's Plymouth Notch 180E-3 paint; a perfect match to lovely AS's Antoinette. And this is what I’ve finally end up with.

Love love love it! I'm thinking some glass drawer handles will look lovely…

Oh and I had to show you my new pillow cases...

Sweet fĂȘte of petty roses and patterns in lovely pastels

Decoupaged books I made to match the room's palette...

Faux roses with scattered real rose petals and antique key...

I love this color of paint so much, I decided to paint this stool in that same shade...
Oh and I finally made my inspiration boards... so pretty! ;)

Hope you enjoyed my pictures!
