I had originally painted it green and used dark wax on it. The wax caused me some big problems. It clumped up and made it look well not as pretty as I would have liked.
I liked the color but did not like how the wax sat in... I wasn't happy at all. And, no matter what I did I could not get the wax to even out on the entire piece.
I tried a few different things but basically the only way to fix the wax problem was going to be to sand it completely away. I am impatient some days – true story!!
I have been wanting to try layering mustard yellow over green anyway. So I had the perfect scenario. If I didn’t like it, I’d just sand it down and start over at that point...I was in no hurry (HA...patience issue remember).
Well if it luck wouldn’t have it I loved it and still love it. It has the perfect layering effect.
I even did a decoupage on the back, but naturally being the "not so in a hurry kind of person" forgot to take the picture. It looked super cute & sweet. And, you'll just have to trust me on that :)
I like mustard yellow…I always have. I like the sunshiny feeling it brings. And, I do know it’s not for everyone, but neither is white or black or red...and that is the beauty of painted furniture!! If you don't like the color, well I can change that for ya.
It appeared as though someone else liked it as much as I did...
I took it to the booth yesterday and it sold before I even had it staged or even a price tag on it!! Now if all of my pieces would sale that quick!!!
