I've been wanting to paint something peach for a while. It's such a fresh, pleasant color. I find myself fully obsessing over mint, peach, pale lilac, and powder blue this time of year. I'm actually painting a giant hutch in the palest most delicious shade of mint right now.
The refinish on this project was fairly straight forward. There was a foot facing that needed to be re-attached (luckily some thoughtful person had stored it in the drawer when it fell off). I sanded the top, stained it a very pale mix of American Oak, to really let all the beautiful age and wear show through, and sealed it. I custom mixed the peach color. Years ago when we were out antiquing, my little sister found a vintage sweater in this color. If I recall correctly, it was covered in opalescent sequins. I coveted that cardigan, but I could never wear it like she does. She's so effortlessly chic. So instead, I painted a dresser in honor of it. The color is called "Erin's Cardigan".
