I'm Back with Yellow Fever

I feel like I have been away from the blog for too long! I promised some new stuff and I hope I don't disappoint.
Yellow seems to be my new go-to color these days and I just can't get enough of it.

(I need a new staging area....that vent and outlet are driving me nuts)!
 

My obsession/hobby/job of finding furniture to paint has rubbed off on my husband. He spotted this table and he suggested we get it. I have a rule of not buying more furniture until I sell furniture but he seems to ignore that little rule. Hey, don't get me wrong, I'm not complianing!

Wanna see more pictures? Okay!!!




I didn't make chalk paint this time. I like the chalk paint (especially the drying time) but you have to sand every entire inch that has been painted. I'm kinda getting tired of that! 
I mixed two yellow "oops"colors (Texas Star & Buttery Yellow) with a brown glaze. I just blended the three colors until I got a color I liked. I made a huge batch so expect to see more furture yellow pieces. Seriously, I hope you like yellow!


                      BEFORE & AFTER


I have a pair of gray end tables I hope to post about soon so stay tuned!
What do you think.....are you catching the yellow fever?
