Mute and Dilute

Aren’t these yellow side tables fantastic?  The color totally reminds me of dandelions!  Oh, snap that’s because the paint color is called Dandy-Lion from Martha Stewart!  That Martha. Is there anything she can’t do? But don’t rush out and buy Dandy-Lion paint just yet.  This is actually a muted version of the color because Liz-Marie added a coat of stain after painting and distressing. 

So NOW you can go get that paint, just throw a can of stain in your cart while you’re at it, or your sweet little Dandy-Lion will be more like DANDY-LION-ALL-UP-IN-YOUR-FACE-YA’LL, and we don’t want that.
