Take a look at Betsy Johnson's New York "Paris" apartment courtesy of Apartment Therapy. It is sooo pink! It is a little too much, but it is so girly and I love it. My tween niece, Sophie, is decorating her bedroom in Paris apartment style too and it inspired me to work on some pink and girly home accessories today.
I picked up these weathered brass candlesticks at an attic sale for $1 and they had seen their better days.
I wanted to give them a romantic and feminine makeover. After primering, I painted them the palest pink and rubbed all the edges with antique gold rub 'n buff. I finished each by gluing on a vintage, pearl and gold button cover.
These wooden plaques were 5o cents at a thrift shop and I have held onto them for a while, not sure what would become of them. I painted them with white and pink stripes and then stenciled a black fleur de lis in the center. I sanded the surfaces to distress them and then used dots of glitter paint to accentuate the fleur de lis. Mr. Rubbish screwed on white hooks for me and they are ready to be hung in a Paris apartment style room. I think they will be perfect for Sophie's new bedroom!
