Pink Dressing Table

I met a lovely lady, Helen, who was cleaning out her parents' house after they'd moved to a nursing home. This was her sister's childhood dressing table. Helen gave it to me for free as she just didn't want it thrown out and she knew I would give it a new lease on life.

I painted it pink, shabbied it up and waxed it. I've lined the drawers in with hot pink paper and now it's ready for sale. I think it's going to look lovely in a little girl's room.
