Pretty in CORAL

 
My first furniture sale was this pretty night stand.
 
Instead of "Pretty in Pink" she is "Pretty in Coral". 
 
 
 
 
I found this gem at the Goodwill and when I saw her she was screaming at me to take her home.
 
I LOVed the style of her.  The bamboo legs.  That hardware!  Owweee!
 
Here she is before.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Oh yes, I've been painting in my living room...It's been a little too chilly to work in the garage.  I know I am driving The Mr. crazy...
 
Mr. if you are reading this I LOVe you!!!
 
And here are more after shots showing off her beauty.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I plan on painting more pieces in this color.  It really had a lot of lookers at the flea market and sold my first day there!
 
Would you buy a coral piece?
 
UPDATE:  A nice reader reminded me I did not include my color info.  Sorry everyone!
 
The color used was Tropical Coral from Olympic and made into homemade chalk paint.  The color is actually much brighter in the can but toned down when turned into the chalk paint.  Here is how I mix my Chalk Paint Recipe.
