A Little Yellow Paint Goes a Long Way

Yellow coffee tableValspar coffee tableEver since I bought my home I've been (slowly) working on decorating. I've noticed that I tend to lean toward lots of neutral and earth tones. I love anything with a laid back vibe. But this can leave your space looking a little, well, colorless. (Duh.) So I've recruited Elsie to help me add accents and a few pops of color. I love the mid century look of my coffee table. We thought adding a little paint could be a fun and inexpensive way to add color. It's always a little scary to paint a piece of furniture!Pretty paintWe partnered with Valspar for this (and a few upcoming projects!). Elsie and I use a lot of colorful paints and get pretty particular, so we're happy about the Love Your Color Guarantee—takes the risk out of choosing your paint color. For this project, I used a coat of primer and then 3 coats of Yellow Mustard paint + primer. Even though the paint had primer in it I decided to use a first coat of primer anyway, because I really wanted the yellow to pop.Coffee tableI simply taped around the edges of the legs and got to work painting. It was super easy and quick to complete. Now I have a little POC in the middle of my living room (among the cow hide rug and cow skulls... I'm going all in on those trends. Can you tell?). We're excited to show you more projects and peeks of our homes in the upcoming months! xo. Emma
