Complete Happiness!


via Porchlight Interiors


While recently searching in one of our favourite second hand shops we came across these timber drawers with faux bamboo trim. It was such an exciting find, we couldn't wait to get them home and turn them into the beautiful piece they were intended to be. After much discussion, it was decided that yellow would be the chosen colour and we couldn't have been happier with the end result. They are currently in a home that we have just finished styling and I'm missing them already. I have to stop getting attached to furniture!

What a great idea to paint them yellow.
Once again, you have given a piece a whole new lease on life.
I'm sure they look fantastic in their new home.

I normally do not like yellow for clothing nor home decor, but when I saw the pic I fell in love with it. The vases, the flowers, just everything about it is beautiful!Great choice!!

This is so gorgeous! I just found a old piece of furniture at a garage sale and I can't decide on what color to paint it. Thanks for the inspiration! Daisy~
