"Hello, handsome! This mid-century modern side table got a bright, bold update using Country Chic Paint 's Fresh Mustard, a striking and retro-inspired mustard yellow that adds a pop of bold color and personality to any space. Paired with General Finishes Colonial Maple Gel Stain on the drawers and legs, it's the perfect combo! I updated the drawer pulls with a fresh gold tone. This striking piece will live in our home."- Pumpkin Seed Designs/Gray Road Candle Co.
"This beautiful Drexel vanity got a lush green glow up! I found a chair to go with it, chose a cactus/succulent print to reupholster the seat cushion with, and I was off to the races.

I updated the sides with some paintable wallpaper by Lowe's Home Improvement and stenciled a fun pattern in white paint on the sides of the drawers. The result is a fresh and stylish look that still...
