Blue, gray, and white have been trending in my home lately, particularly in my boys’ bedrooms. I’ve been painting so many things blue for them lately, I thought I’d go a little girly this week with PINK. Not just any pink but a very light, pastel pink.
Inspiration for this pastel pink headboard and table came from these photos posted by sfgirlbybay in her search for Scandinavian-inspired pastel shades.
Bright pastels. That’s an oxymoron isn’t it? Can a color be both soft & bright at the same time? I love how these blend nicely with the whites without being too contrasting like a navy or red would be.
Here’s how I originally found the twin headboard. The shape alone told me it was a girl’s bed.
The table was a yellow-stained hexagon pedestal.
Both were ugly ducklings just waiting to become a beautiful swans!
This table was likely used as a living room side table; but I knew if I was going to make it work, I needed to do a complete 360 degree turn to transform it. I stared at this one for weeks. At first I thought white, black, or gray would give it a new look; but that wouldn’t have given it a new purpose.
The six sides reminded me of a child’s dining table. I imagined tiny chairs sitting around it having a tea party. That’s when I decided it needed to be a girl’s tea party table.
The fluted pedestal reminded me of the posts you’d find on a four poster bed.
The three, wide legs made the table very sturdy.
While the posts on the headboard aren’t fluted like that on the table, when painted the same pastel pink, they go very nicely together.
This pastel pink twin headboard and tea table are for sale. The set $125. Separately (table $75, headboard $65)
