hibiscus pink dresser

so ya know that pantone revealed 2011's hottest color to be what they're calling "honeysuckle" pink, right? so, i love pink anyway, but usually i'm drawn to lighter shades of pink, but when i saw that was the pick of the year i had to jump on board! so i got out my sherwin williams paint deck and found this beauty called "hibiscus" -which i think is close to the "honeysuckle" color. so far, i've painted this dresser a doll high chair and a wooden tray for my coffee table in this color-and all w/ a $6 sample from s.w. this dresser is in the shop now .it only cost me $5 on craigslist plus paint and i already had the knobs, they were free to begin with! sorry about the pics-i still don't have a camera (i returned the one i bought-cuz it was just crappy!) so i'm still using my cell phone for a camera! the pic of the dresser better represents the true color of this paint. my plan is to save up for a really nice camera and not waste my time or $$$ on cheapo's! until then, i hope you will con't to visit regardless of the poor photo quality! i'll be linking up to some great parties-check them out if you get a chance! re-stored it wednesday , Beyond The Picket Fence  vintage thingie thursday
