Little Yellow Dresser

I only have a few minutes to write this post!  I seem to always be on the run.  Tonight I’m heading to an auction (it’s going to be a good one, I sent my husband over to scope it out earlier) and then I’m hoping to make it over to see my friend’s hubby play in his band.  Anyway…I have just finished several pieces but I thought I would quickly share this cute little yellow dresser with you before I hit the road.  Obviously anything painted white or gray sells quickly but it’s nice to add some color to my space at Furniture Affair and this piece was chosen!!!


This little dresser could really be used anywhere for storage.  It would even look great sitting next to a bed in place of your typical night stand.  I LOVE this mustardy yellow color (used my homemade chalk paint recipe).


Have a great night ~ stay warm!



UPDATE:  Just got a call that this dresser has SOLD!  Delivered one day…sold the next!  I guess using a little color didn’t affect the sells at all!!! :)

  1. Love the color! I’m all about using a variety and fun colors once in a while.

  2. Such a happy, cheerful color and it compliments so many color schemes. Grey comes to mind and so does navy blue! It would brighten any corner and it turned out great!

  3. It’s darling Judy!! Homemade chalk paint huh??? I’m really impressed. It looks like a nice buttery yellow. I don’t usually do color, but I’ve been thinking about adding something to my family room in maybe a soft aqua color. Did you use a homemade recipe that you found on-line???

    I hope your plants are all covered up, it’s gonna be another cold one tonight!!! Brrrr!
    xo,

    • Thanks Karen! Yep the plants are covered again…so it the pool pump and we’re keeping it running all night long so the pipes won’t freeze! I LOVE the color aqua, and remember ~ if you don’t like it, you can always repaint it white! :) Homemade chalk paint works good to cover surfaces but if you want the piece distressed, you still have to sand, it doesn’t just rub off with a damp cloth like the store bought formulas. I just paint with a mixture of everything, keeps life interesting! My Recipe: 1 cup paint, 1/3 cup Plaster of Paris, 1/3 cup warm water. Mix the POP with the warm water until it’s completely dissolved and then stir it into the paint. Let me know if you need any help! ~ Judy
