Decor Cravings

I've been on this insane decorating rampage where I want to paint everything in sight and search every design and decor blog known to man. This week I found an amazing couch and the most incredible blue cabinets in the whole wide world.
One day I'll go nuts when we own.... One day! 
To get my fix, I painted some old mirrors! I needed some COLOR in my life! 

Before:
(our old place. This was me 6 months pregnant...)
After:
I toned it down with only 3 instead of five...
These little gems were purchased for less than $15 bucks all together
at various thrift stores and yard sales, you know how we do.
They were once black and gold, and now they are yellow. 

I can't decide. Are they school bus yellow OR macaroni and cheese yellow? 

I can't get over that pink couch and those blue cabinets. 
Every time I look at those cabinets, my mouth waters. 
How can a color do that?! It really does though.

    Also, I think your mirrors are what's known as Friggin' Awesomesauce Yellow.

  11. school bus yellow, for sure :)

    I'm getting the painting itch, too...though my husband is a little less inclined to let me go crazy.

    And those cabinets are AWESOME!

  12. I like the yellow- it is cheery and I agree that cabinet looks amazing. You could totally recreate an itty bitty version with your big brown bookcase in the office:)

  13. I've been looking at that book case for about a year now wanting to do something with it. The thought of sanding that monster down seems so daunting to me.

    I need like 20 little gnomes with lots of electric sanders to come and get it done for me in one weekend. that would be awesome.

  15. Chelsea..i feel ya sister. i have the paint bug bad. im the kind of painter that has to start and finish all in one day though..i dont like lingering projects and i just hate the thought of starting and then having to stop to entertain little Jude. maybe i will get the nerve up to conquer that impatient quirk and just do it. your mirrors are wonderful ...yellow..my all time favorite color

  21. You did great with the yellow... color can really change the look and the feel of an object. You inspired me to paint some of my frames now.
