Pink in the Cheeks!

Pink in the Cheeks!
Hey there! So, who likes pink?  I think pretty much everybody does.  Or they should.  I’m talking about pink the color, not Pink! the rock star, although I also like her too.  If I could pick out a singing voice for myself, I’d choose hers.  I would.  But that’s not the point.  The point is, do you like pink?  I hope so, because there are some pinkified makeovers coming atcha’!  But first, an impromptu poll!
Hey, do you like pink? free polls 
Ok, after all of that shajazz, we are going to start this off with some purple.  Ha ha!  I so crazy.  Seriously, I might be, I feel a little delirious.  I think I have a fever. 
Here we go!
Sarah from Renewed Upon a Dream fixed up this dresser for a baby shower gift, (woah, get her on your guest list!) and added the softest little breath of a hint of purple to the insets.  I love how IN-YOUR-FACE it isn’t.

Jeff from A Touch of Arkansas built this sweet little end table with his bare hands (well, and some tools, I imagine).  He did two coats of pink, two coats of white, and then strategically sanded to uncover the pink.  Doesn’t it look great peeking through on the wood grain?

Better After reader Casey shows us that the combination of pink and polka dots can’t be beat.  By anything.  Ever.  But especially not by mud-colored naugahyde.  Ha ha, you LOSE naugahyde!  (But you are a fun word to say).

Hmmm, I don’t know how this one slipped in here, because it’s not pink in any way, but it sure is girly, so we’re going with it.  Amy, AKA The Savvy Stager had owned these chairs for too long and was sick of looking at them.  So she did what made obvious sense, faux fur!  Topped with sequined pillows!  I can totally see these adorning some fashion boutique that I’m not hip enough to shop in.  (And totally reminds me of this hilariousness from my favorite comic strip ever, F Minus.)

You know what?  This redo doesn’t have any pink in it either, technically.  Blame my fever.  I’m sick as a dog and still blogging it up for you!  That is how much I love you, reader!  I might not actually be sick, I think it’s just warm in here.  Anyway, there IS a rad pink wall, so it totally counts.  From Shannon at Compartment Life. Who knew those old hexagon cane-weave tables could look so current?!

And finally, finishing off with some more, you guessed it, pink!  Shelly found this desk and chair for $30 and rehabbed the whole lot. Holy cow, what color was that desk?  It’s like … are you old enough to remember when Crayola had a crayon color named “flesh”?  Yeah … it’s better now.

    Trying to pick a favorite, maybe gotta go with the folding chair re-do because I just wouldn’t of thought of that.

    With the exception of the furry chairs – what was she thinking! – they all turned out great!

    I love the gray chair… sorry if they are your chairs, but the fur is such a sad after. I love gray these days though, so maybe that is why.

    Love all your posts and amazing ideas!

    Well, for more of the story on the fur chairs, that gray fabric was actually hunter green velvet that had long ago been spray painted over, so I think the fur is an improvement over the dusty crusty crunchiness!

    Totally remember the flesh crayons, and wondering as a kid, if anyone actually had flesh that color!

    I love pink! Pretty funny, considering I was a total tomboy until about 25. I think it had to do with pregnancy & motherhood…changed my hormone levels or something LOL

    Love the fur chairs, I would do this in any color but white. Only because my grandson loves fuzzy fur stuff he loves it and will rub his dimpled smile all over anything fuzzy including our patient cats. He is 2 his sweet smile is forever covered in his latest snack, popsicle or sucker.
