Prettier in Pink

Yes, long time no blog. What can I say- sometimes life takes you by surprise and plans change. So I was so happy when my super cute cousin called.  She is having her first baby girl! Yay! When Kellie asked if some of her boys' nursery furniture could be done to look like this dresser and the Molly tables, I was so excited!  I'm loving how they turned out. Without further ado...

The crib:

You would never know that this crib used to be chocolate brown and live in big brother's room.  White with pink accents and a dark walnut stain-nothing brother about it now! 

With no dust ruffle, the under bed storage trundle will be getting the spotlight.  I added a pretty little applique for another fun touch of pink.

 After all the painting and staining was said and done, I distressed, distressed, distressed.  But don't worry- all that chippy goodness is completely baby-proofed and sealed in with a clear polycrylic.
 Just love.

 Kellie also brought me this adorable bookshelf and hutch that was hers as a little girl.  It was all white and in good condition, but I just had to add some fun to pink it up a little more.

 I added my favorite pattern on the back panels, then stained and distressed the whole thing.

She plans on adding pink glass knobs like those I used on Lindsey's dresser
In real life the pink is softer than in the pics.  I amped it up just a little to make it easier to see on a screen.

Kellie, thank you so much!  I hope that you and baby girl love it!  And I wouldn't hate some pictures of it all put together sometime, either :)
