Shades of Yellow (bowfront dresser)

Ever have a love affair? 

Nooooo, not that kind. Geesh. 
You have to think out of the box here. 

I'm in love with colour. Depending on the day, I love different colours. Each time I do a piece of furniture or paint a wall in my house I fall in love. 

Hubby is convinced I'm in love with Grey. And he's right. But I love pairing it with other colours. 

But then there is yellow. Different shades of yellow. And some pieces scream for it. 

Take this dresser. 

The moment I saw it I knew I had to have it. I also instantly pictured it in yellow. 

So after having it home for a couple of weeks I set to work. 
 Aren't you proud of me for taking "during" pics" ? LOL

I had to abandon it for a couple of days while I went to the cottage and going to yard sales...but I got back at it and finished it up on Monday. 

 I re-used the original handles because they were so pretty to begin with. I just cleaned them up.

 A bit of yummy distressing and sealing and viola!

In love.

Eventually it will be paired with a table and bed
 I'm going to be working on these this weekend...but won't it be a great marriage?

 I can't wait for the new owners to send me pics in it's final home.

Can't you picture it all together?
