Hot pink shabby chic pink number dresser

Randy brought home a fabulous little dresser from Goodwill for me yesterday. I jumped right into the project because I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it...Here it is before I got my hands on it...

My inspiration for the piece was some brown paper with pink polka dots that I planned to decopodge to the interior of the drawers. I only had a deep pink paint, so I mixed it with some white to get the desired color....

I am in love with the big chunky white knobs. The numbers were added for a little whimsy. I can see this dresser in any room.....A bathroom holding linens. In a mudroom housing hats, gloves, etc. And of course would go great in a little girl's room or playroom....

I hope everyone is having a fabulous New Year's Day....

Take care,
