Perfectly Pink! NOT!

So  a lady on craigslist continues to post furniture and great prices, and I just can't resist buying almost everything she posts.  Now we are on a  private email....she asks me first if I want something before she posts on the site...LOL.  I love it!  I picked up this little pink stand from her a few months ago.  Stripping it gave me major headaches.  I don't know what kind of paint that was used, but it didn't want to come off.

The details were amazing.  The only problem was 2 legs were broken off and repaired with nails.  The wood is softer and I had a heck of a time getting the nails out, so I only repaired 1 leg.  I first painted this black, but I never took a picture.  I have ALWAYS wanted a silver piece, so I spray painted it.  I do need better handles (have to get to Hobby Lobby), but I love it! Hope you like it too!
