Then it was time for the fun part...paint! I knew I wanted to do yellow to balance out the yellow chair on the opposite wall in our room. I have painted yellow walls before and it can be tricky to find the perfect shade, especailly when you are trying to match an existing piece. I bought three different yellow spray paints in hopes of one being the perfect shade. Neither of them matched the chair exactly so I started with the lightest shade called Warm Yellow by Rustoleum. I knew after the first coat that it was going to be too light and creamy for what I was going for but I continued onto the second coat just to make sure. And then B.J. carried it all the way to our room so I could be SURE sure that it wasn't the right color, and it wasn't, so back to the garage it went.

I am so happy with the finished product and it's just what our bedroom was missing. Besides the yellow upholstered chair, our bedroom is made up of modern furniture from West Elm and Ikea. I love that the curved detail on this vanity off sets all of the straight lines on our bed and dressers. Adding vintage pieces gives a room character and that's one reason why I love mixing the old with the new.
