My fascination with the two-toned paint combination continues with this sweet yellow and white cottage dresser.
This one came from a yard sale last summer.
She was a little wobbly and not in perfect condition, but just so darn cute!
I decided to go with my absolute favorite yellow - General Finishes Milk Paint in Buttermilk - on the body of the dresser.
And the drawers are painted with Behr's Paint and Primer in One in Silky White.
I sanded the entire piece. The spots where the veneer was missing were patched with Elmer's Wood Filler. But I did not need to prime with either of these paints - a huge time saver. I finished with a light distressing and a coat of wipe on poly.
I really love this color, but I can never get it to photograph well. You'll just have to take my word for it that it's a soft buttery color - Buttermilk is the perfect name for it!
And the General Finishes Milk Paint comes ready to use in a can - no mixing involved.
I love the curves of this dresser, the open feel at the bottom ...
and of course the wheels.
This one ranks up there as one of my favorites!
And I'm happy to report that she found a happy home ...
in my guest room!
And a funny thing ... this is the room that we used as the inspiration for Megan's bedroom. It's from Sarah's Cottage - Sarah Richardson Design. Not sure if I've mentioned it before, but we love Sarah!
Well I recently came across this photo from that very same room. Yes, that's a yellow and white dresser from Sarah! Totally made me smile!!!
