Springy Things!

Springy Things!

Dreaming of spring?  Meeee too.  Here’s a few cheerful yellow makeovers to get you in the spirit!  

Dacia at Lemon Drop Life needed two things: a changing table for her impending baby, and a dose of color in an otherwise neutral nursery.  One trip to a creepy guy’s house who was selling this on Craigslist, one heavy application of Lysol, and a few light coats of Macaw by Valspar, and mission accomplished!

Elaine also envisioned something sunny and storagey with this freebie dresser.  She used Sun-Kissed Yellow by Benjamin Moore and stuck it smack dab in the bathroom, which makes total sense when you realize that this bathroom was meant have a bathtub there.  But, being the fourth bathroom, a tub wasn’t necessary, and being close to the entryway, shoe storage was.  Win!  See more on her blog Visual Meringue.

And lastly, Alina at My Yellow Umbrella rescued this terribly sad chair with a happy chevron fabric.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen a sadder chair.  Who on earth was sitting (or standing, or jumping, or storing bowling balls) in that thing?  Look how much closer the seat cushion is to the back cushion in the after!  Ahh. All is right with the world again.

    I think it’s funny that all these cheery yellow makeovers come from blogs named in reference to something yellow. (I know meringue is kind of a stretch but I always think of lemon when I hear it).

    I love the curves on the legs and the pretty color.

    What’s with all those weird comments? I’m not clicking on any of their links.
    Anyway, I love all of these makeovers and particularly love the drawers. I’d love to see an update in 6 months on the change table with all those neat tidy boxes. My change table looked tidy too before my children were born lol.

    Bowling balls need chairs because they are people too just in a more dense round form hello.

    Theres something about yellow paint that makes the plainest thing turn into something stylish and unique. I love that cabinet, would never have thought to put boxes on it but it totally works 😀

    That first redo is a seriously great organizational idea. I see those changing tables all the time and never would have thought to turn one into a little storage unit. I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled for a sturdy one now!
