This post is mainly for my momma, she had no idea how a yellow dresser was going to fit into my living room. I promised her it would so now I'm going to prove it! :)
When I decided to paint my dresser mustard yellow there was not a speck of mustard yellow in my living room, not any. I knew I was going to have to tie it in somehow and when you don't want to buy all new furniture and drapes, what's the easiest way to add some color? Throw pillows. I bought some great fabric that had mustard yellow and also the burgundy color I already had in my living room. I also bought some felt to sew up a couple pillows I had seen online. I got busy and sewed, sewed, sewed!
I followed the second pattern on this tutorial to make this pillow. It's apparently another Pottery Barn knock off like the first pillow I made. It's not exactly the same but I am happy with how mine turned out.
I wanted to also tie in a little more of the turquoise that is in the pillows and I had this metal vase that I've actually never loved so I pulled out some leftover paint from this project and painter her up.
I also purchased this great turquoise throw for $10.
I added some cute vases to the dresser. I like the color and like the simplicity of the pair.
Then I called it DONE! It's just a few additions but I think it's cohesive and definitely a lot more colorful. AND the yellow dresser TOTALLY fits in! Right mom?!
