pink stone monster

If you can recall, I bought a dresser at Goodwill a few weeks ago...can't find the pic because I deleted them all!  lol...I'm so tech saavy!  Well, it was a big old Bassett dresser....very curvy and french-y but someone has painted the top with pink "fake stone" (what in the world???).  Yesterday it went from ugly duckling to....



beautiful swan!



this is the top post stripping and some sanding...love the Pepto Bismol pink paint!
YUK!!

It took me all day long, but I got it done. 
I love it, it's so beautiful!



I stained the top cherry.  The drawers are painted in flat white by Valspar.  I added the brown distressing with no other than....STAZ ON ink in timber brown!  Gotta love using your scrapbooking supplies in a furniture re-do!!

Now, if I could only make it fit where I want to in our bedroom....that re-do is in process...new paint color and going to redo our bedframe...but that's another post!

happy day!
