Antoinette Dreams of Paris (Grey)!

After doing a pratfall on the front step this morning due to black ice, I declared it an ice day and we stayed home. Despite a slightly sprained thumb, I painted. Haven't waxed yet, but here she is....Antoinette Dreams of Paris (Grey) and Old White.

I made two tries at this one, first doing a Coco wash over the Antoinette pink, which was very pretty, but I wanted something that really showed off the pretty mellow pink color. It looked a bit too aged for this cute piece. So repainted and listened to my older sister, who really does know best! She wanted Paris Grey, as did most people, and a touch of Old White to outline things.  I love it and think someone else will too when I put the whole set together....Now onto the toile fronted dressing table....hint, hint.


  1. Oooh. So darling. So excited to get going with this. Happily anticipating the color chart. In fact, already have project two picked out! ;)

  2. Sorry to hear about your thumb (ouch) but love the look of this table. When you do the wash do you just thin down the paint with water? Also, how do you always put those cute cursive words on your projects?
