Antoinette~the new pink chalk paint color!

 Antoinette is a brand new color in the Annie Sloan chalk paint line.
I think this company is the perfect fit for Maison Decor
 and want to give her a big welcome!
Old fashioned roses and the color of old plaster, this soft
pale pink has a hint of brown so it is not too sweet.
I am thrilled to to try it~
and I have just the project in mind.
 A Victorian chair I have had for 20 years will be getting a new look.
 Antoinette  is perfect for Valentines and Easter~
Or everyday pieces for shabby chic style
 I plan to make my chair very Antoinette,
 with some dark wax and a little gilding~
stay tuned for the reveal this weekend!
