Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here.
Any Beatles fans out there?
In honor of spring, I decided to paint this dresser in a bright and sunny yellow last weekend. I’ve actually had this paint since last fall just waiting for the perfect piece. As soon as I saw this one on craigslist, I knew it would be lovely in yellow.
Painting details: painted in MMS Mustard Seed Yellow milk paint, details painted in Linen, finished with MMS clear wax.
New to me, I left the top alone. It seems to be more and more popular to leave the tops of pieces stained, so I thought I would give that a try. I cheated though … the top of this one was in good enough shape as is, I just spruced it up with a little MMS hemp oil. I’m still not brave enough to strip and stain. Maybe I will tackle that skill this summer.
The hardware on this dresser was quite lovely, and I had all of it, so it stayed.
It’s a perfectly lovely little breath of sunshine to welcome spring. Wish I had a fresh bunch of daffodils to stage my photo, but we are still a bit away from daffodils here in Minnesota. Just imagine them there in that ironstone pitcher.
