Cottage White and Pink French Provential Dresser

I got this dresser at a garage sale a month or so ago with the intention of selling it, but realized my girls' are going to need a dresser when they move to their new big, new(brother's old) room so I decided to keep it, maybe I'll blog about that redo when the time comes, and it's so well made and sturdy

So it's not going to be at the cottage, but I thought I would share the before and after pics

here it is before(after I took the handles off, then I remembered to take the before pic)

I'm really into the contrasting colors right now, I guess I was getting a little board with just black or white.  I did this one a few months ago as a custom order, I wasn't sure I was going to like, but when it was done I thought it turned out really cute.
I sanded and primed as usual.  All those drawers are gonna be great in the girls' room.

After two coats of some pink paint I already had

It would be cute with glass handles, but I thought the ones that were on it were pretty cute(and free)

After primer and heirloom white spray paint

Then two coats of our cottage white on the dresser

And finally all done(hopefully it makes it to their new room soon).

I love it! Love the drawers pink and the main part white! It really stands out but not in an obnoxious way. : ) I love the original hardware that comes on these dressers. I just used Rub n Buf on one I did for my master. It looks like a great size and I'm sure it will definitely come in handy to hold clothes, clothes and more clothes for your girls.

I love the colors. I see the white is Cottage White, what brand? Also, please tell me you have the name of the pink? Such an inspiration for my dresser. Thinking I will do a dark top though.

The color we call cottage white, is actually a recycled latex paint we get from a local recycling facility, and unfortunately the pink was leftover from my daughters room that my husband had mixed.We could have it matched and given a number, through Miller or Rodda Paint if you have those suppliers near you.
