I finally got around to painting the little,yellow dresser at the beginning of December.
I decided I needed a little pop of color! Believe it or not, we had a our first "big" snow in Chicago the other day and by the next day it was gone! So now it's just dreary out. Bleh. I think a bit of color just makes everything a bit more cheery.
I color matched to an old toolbox I have in my living room so it's a custom color, but the closest color I could find in the was a Benjamin Moore fan deck was a color called Vintage Vavoom.
For some reason, this photographs much lighter. I might have to play with my white balance. This is actually a really dark blue-green. Yep, I painted over the handles for now. I couldn't decide, so I went right over them! I thought it might make it a bit sleeker. If I decide later to bring them back to their original state, I just soak them in boiling water with a touch of dish soap and the paint will come right off.
I love how it looks against the white background.
I put a pretty,rough cut linen shade on my lamp. I thought it looked perfect there.
I added some birds and nests to my little terrarium for a touch of spring.
I am ready to bring in some color!
I am also getting ready for the Pom-pom party!!
Love me some pom-poms!!!
