Yummy yellow!

Okay, you can tell that I didn't get me project completed this past weekend.  I've finally got it to a presentable state.  Do you remember this dresser I picked up from the Goodwill?


Well, I finally rolled up my sleeves and got to work.  At first, I was paralyzed with color choices.  Do I go with my safe white or should I break out of my comfort zone??  Well, I decided to take a cue from the actual dresser itself.  It has a grain applique at the top of each side.  Why not go yellow? 

I have seen so many beautiful and bold yellows out there in blog world lately.  But for some reason, that didn't quite speak to me.  So, to Home Depot I went to look at the zillion yellow color samples.  I knew I wanted to go for more a primitive yellow perhaps.  I finally decided on, well, I would tell you but I can't find it in my stack of stuff.  After sanding the top, staining it walnut, painting and glazing, here is the yummy yellow dresser.  (edit - dug through my stack and the color is Behr Pyramid Gold UL150-13, the glaze is Valspar Mocha)


This picture really doesn't show her color off, too much sun.  Let's try this one.



Here is a close up to show the distressing and the glaze.  It's not the best but it'll have to do.



I have to wait for the glaze to cure for one week.  Then, I will poly it all.

I want to know what you think.  Please drop a comment.

  16. I love the title of your blog. Your dresser turned out great! Did you sand the whole thing? And you made a blog button! . . . I worked for about 4 hours trying to make one and finally gave up. Your kids took some amazing photos! Thanks for visiting my blog.
