Pink, pink, I love pink

I wanted to share with you the little project I did last weekend.

I have had this little chest on my sewing table for years. It is perfect for

holding sewing needles, buttons, & fancy trinkets for my different sewing projects. However, as perfect as it is, I have not liked the color it is. It just didn't go with the theme of my sewing room. So one day I thought to myself, “I wonder if I could paint it?”

So I took a trip to Joanne's in search of some spray paint. Well I found the isle of spray paint, & look what I saw on the shelf …....

This is the most glorious color of pink!!!!!! It's called ballet slipper pink, how perfect is that. I would buy a case of it if I could.

Well I headed home so happy with my find. Then started to work of

preparing my little chest for it's new color.

Now it looks like this....

Isn't it pretty? Now I need to find something else to paint with the wonderful color.

In the mean time, I joined a pincushion swap on Block Central's forum & found this cute pattern by Anne Sutton at Bunny Hill. I made one for my partner, & love the cute little owl so much, I had to make one for myself. I made the little owl with minki & she is so soft. Of course the pillow she is sitting on had to be PINK.

Happy October everyone,



  1. I love that color and often use it myself. I don't have the spray, just the little craft bottle, but it's a perfect shade of pink.
    Your project is just over the top in every way. I love how you can see everything inside the drawers, and it's all in easy reach.
    I love your owl pincushion, what fun that much be, Char
