Here is it July and I’m not sure if summer has actually arrived in Minnesota. For those of you not local, the high temps this week were in the upper 60’s to low 70’s. That is a little unusual, even for Minnesota. I’m not complaining though, I kind of love it. Perfect weather for getting stuff painted.
But, I thought I would add a little more summer sunshine into July with this gorgeous dresser.
Let’s start at the beginning, shall we?
This dresser had fabulous written all over it. Lucky for me, nnK spotted it on craigslist. Obviously it was gorgeous in its day, but it was rather the worse for the wear. The trim detail on the bottom had bits broken off. There were scratches and dings everywhere. A couple of the knobs were missing. Really, it just wasn’t meeting its potential.
My immediate thought was to paint it aqua. Either Annie Sloan Duck Egg or MMSMP Eulalie’s Sky. But something about that plan just didn’t sit right. Then, lying in bed one morning, it came to me. Mustard Seed Yellow with Linen accents. I had done another dresser in this color scheme for Junk Bonanza, and it was the first piece of furniture that sold. I just knew it would be perfect for this one too.
Let’s pop on in to the photo cottage and take a look!
The Mustard Seed Yellow is bright and cheery. The Linen just makes the details pop.
Suddenly I am craving a glass of freshly squeezed lemonade, or maybe some lemon meringue pie.
How about you?
