But despite the mounds of blue that exist in my house, I really do love a good pink.
This is a new revelation for me too.
So when I spotted this darling vintage baby doll bassinet while thrifting last weekend (for $2 mind you), I knew it'd look so sweet with a few coats of Country Chic Paint's Vintage Cupcake.
It had clearly been well-loved by some sweet little girl before (I love imagining the story of these pieces when I get them…as if they have feelings).
I cleaned up the bassinet with a wet cloth, sanded gently on the flat surfaces with a 220 grit sanding block, and then slapped on two coats of paint in Vintage Cupcake.
Always wanting to "rough it up" a little, I finished it off with a coat of Antique Wax, let that dry and buffed it out with a soft cloth.
I love how the Antique Wax adds so much more dimension to the color.
I'm minorly in love with these hand-sewn dollies that look like they belong perfectly in this sweet bassinet.
They were loaned to us just for the day, but were originally made by her.
Even if just for the day.
