Why call it "First Kiss" you may ask. Because the paint color was called that. It was a quite obnoxious hot pink that I had to tone down with some dark stain. Now it is rich and luxurious. I painted up a vanity chair and headboard to make it a glam bedroom set. Diva Approved!

Julien writes: I love this, daring and wonderful, might have to spruce my bedroom up with this color.. What stain did you use, I didn't know you could mix stain and paint. I guess I never gave it a thought before but looks like it works great to tone down the paint. Posted: 2:50 pm on February 20th
