I am not a lover of the colour yellow but for some reason I really, really like the yellow that was used on this dresser.
In fact, I like it so much that I went out and bought a small container of paint that I hope matches this yellow to paint a dresser that I have in my basement sewing room.
This is my lovely little dresser. I think it is designed very similar to the one that I have fallen in love with.
Do you see that paint swatch? I'm hoping that it is the colour match I need to copy my dream dresser. You never know about these things until you start painting. I figure if it's way too bright to my liking though I can tone it down with some white paint. EEK-I hope!
I plan, also, to add plaster of Paris to the mix to create a chalk paint effect.
Have you ever tried this? I have not. I have painted black premixed chalk on a couple of door and they turned out fine.
My sister mixes her own all the time and assures me it will work.
I found a recipe here that I will use unless someone else out there tells me of a better one. Oh, and feel free to offer any tips you have-please!
I know I've promised the sewing room photos soon.....
My excuse for not posting them already is threefold.
1) I have a scratched and stained counter top that I want to cover with contact paper before I show you the room.
2) I want to finish the dresser first.
3) I have to finish this bag order for the Yukon before I can take the time to do excuse #1 or 2.
There you have it, my bag of excuses.
I can't believe it is Thursday already. I don't feel like I have gotten much accomplished this week at all. I did get all of the bags cut out. I had to wait on my thread order to arrive. It showed up Tuesday. But then Tim and I went gallivanting over to Marathon yesterday and blew my hopes of getting any work done on Wednesday. But that is life.
And we do need to be spontaneous once in a while!
Here is hoping that you have a blessed weekend. And a sunny and warm one wouldn't be bad either.
