h e l l o   y e l l o w 

This weekend I spent some time working on little projects around my own home. I love color and I found myself the last few months living with more muted colors in my home, especially in my living room. It is so dark and grey in Washington this time of year I wanted to bring more color back into my home. 
I chose the color yellow as my new accent color.

I painted this sweet chest of drawers in my family room.
{paint color same as walls- Dutch Boy, Willows Gold}

I sewed some fun new pillows for my couches. The fabric is from a local gift store. When I asked  the clerk the manufacturer, she did know....sorry! This fabric was perfect for me. It had all of the colors of my living room.

I painted a new black and white dresser for my entry, look at the black feet {if you can see them in this picture}!
How cute are the little yellow baskets under it?!

It is hard for me to switch focus on painting things for the shop and painting things for my home. I don't want to forget about my home! I have decided that the weekends are for me and not painting for The Modern Cottage Company. I want fun furniture too!
