Last week I shared the Little Speckled Frog dresser, as well as the new line of nursery colors from Fusion. I mentioned that they sent me a few jars of different colors to play around with. One of the colors they sent is called Little Piggy.
Now don’t tell them I said this, but I have to admit that when I first saw this color I thought “hmmm … maybe this one isn’t really for me.” But then another one of Fusion’s bloggers, Mary from Orphans with Makeup posted an absolutely gorgeous dresser painted in this color and I realized that I had it all wrong. She had way more vision than I. She could see that it was going to be the most lovely pale champagne pink, and she was right.
Once I’d seen the color actually on something, I knew I had to crack open that jar of paint and try it out myself.
I pulled out this little child sized chair that I purchased at the Linden Hills garage sales …
and I painted it up with two coats of Little Piggy.
To add a little pop of interest to the chair, I stenciled the seat with my french ‘sweet dreams’ stencil.
Isn’t this the most lovely subtle pink? It’s not over-the-top bubblegum pink, or sickly sweet cotton candy pink, it’s a sophisticated pink.
I staged it at the bend in my staircase. I get the most gorgeous light in that spot towards evening and I wanted to capture that.
And the chair fit perfectly into that corner.
It’s probably not the safest spot for little ones to sit and sip their pretend tea while reading fairy tales from Shakespeare, but it sure looks pretty for pictures.
Since I don’t have any little ones to place in precarious positions, this little piggy chair is going to market. I’m taking this and a few other pieces to Reclaiming Beautiful tonight.
What do you think of this lovely pale pink?
