Painted Yellow Side Table - I'm a Chicken!

It's done.

And I like it. 

But I sorta feel like I chickened out by only painting the inside yellow.


 It matches this Goodwill Coffee Table I did, but I think I just played it too safe.


 Here's what it looked like before -- gross with a side of dir-tay and a buffet of cobwebs.


Scrubbed it clean, gave it a fresh coat of white paint on the outside and four coats of Behr Twenty Carat on the inside.

Not exactly a drastic before/after picture, but Chickens don't do drastic things.


Hardware stayed the same. I thought about painting it yellow, but again, I'm a big fat chicken.




 Off to lay some eggs...

    1. Thank you. I"m starting to think that it was the right decision on that piece. But I really want to get out of my comfort zone and paint something bright!

  2. I think it looks great with just the inside painted...probably better than I would like it all painted yellow. It's perfect- xo Diana

  4. I love love LOVE this! My husband is totally color-phobic (his entire house was decorated in beige and tan when we met - I've gradually introduced a few muted blues and greens). We are getting ready for a remodel and I've been stressing about suggesting some color and this will be a great compromise!

    I found you on Show Me What Ya Got. I'd love it if you'd visit me too at http://ReadMyChickenScratch.com

    1. Hi Becky! Our house used to be beige and boring too! Slowly but surely I'm breathing LOTS of color into it! And by the time I'm done, I'm sure beige will be back in :P
