Nope! You’re not crazy!
Yep! You’ve seen this buffet!
Just two weeks ago I shared with you a much brighter version with gingham checks. You can see that HERE…
My client liked the checks but felt they didn’t work well with her current decor…and kindly asked if I would remove them. THEN….after careful consideration…..I decided to also repaint the entire piece in a softer yellow. The brighter yellow was just too FUN….for the soft and cozy room it would be featured in.
I chose to repaint the piece in Dixie Belle’s Rebel Yellow. It is a soft buttery yellow that is very easy on the eyes! You can see in the photo below the comparison of the two colors….Rebel Yellow vs. Daisy…..both by Dixie Belle.
Repainting was easy….and I was happy to do it! It only took one coat to sufficiently cover the brighter yellow….some light distressing for accent….and then a nice easy application of Easy Peasy Spray Wax to seal the finish.
I LOVE when I can compare a piece like this! In fact…..having the opportunity to show you both versions really excites me….and the side to side is the best way!
For those that will ask…..removing the decor transfer was just as easy. Just a few scrapes with a paint scraper and it was back down to raw wood! I re-primed the recessed squares with BOSS in white to stop potential bleed through….and then coated with one coat of Rebel Yellow.
Both the paint AND the design transfers are available via my shop section below. Just click on the little words of each photo below and it will take you straight to the shopping page!
