Old Shutters and a little yellow love

I spent the day painting 4 pairs of vintage bifold shutters today.  They are old and vintage but had never been painted, someone probably bought them to build with and they were never used but had the weathered feel that old wood gets.  I wanted to use the colors you would find on the centuries old brick homes of Provence.  I ran out of my aubusson.....and that would have been first pick.  So we have AS Chalk Paint colors Paris Grey, Provence, Scandanavian Pink and Duck Egg. (the Scandanavian pink photographs a little red, in real life it is a beautiful deep dusty pink I see no red)

I am Taking these to the "Shanty Chateau" tomorrow......I really wish I could
just put all of them around the house, I love the splashes of colorI hope they find a home
or possibly be a cool store display

I put them up against my yellow hall (I have the same yellow in my Pantry.  I was laughing after I took the picture because I had a phone conversation with a new friend that I have made at Pickers Point the antique mall my Shanty Chateau resides in, she has a booth as well and she was discussing with me how much she hated yellow..........I told her I have yellow walls in my hall and pantry but I did not share with her just how deep my love for yellow went.

My first blog banner had yellow roses,  I drool over old Yellow Chevy's  and think that one would be cool to go pickin in.  My eyes are hazel and as a little girl my  mom told me Yellow was my color. 

I have several projects in my paint room that are yellow as I have sold quite a few distressed handpainted  pieces last week that were yellow with a little european flair and had two request wanting to see more


Last week I died a few yards of linen and antique lace yellow to create with I love yellow against grey.. And My Great Granny's vaseline Vase is yellow been in the family for 5 generations now..........below is beginnings of a magnetic chalkboard that I am working on making in a few colors and putting in the Chateau

Think Anthropology....Think Yellow against grey in the clothing they offer, think yellow against khaki or olive, Think that big yellow leather couch in the middle of the store that I drool over everytime and sit down for just a minute and pretend it is mine and that I found it at a flea market for 50.00 ok I am awake I promise!

Anyway, my new friend you know who you are and I just had to let out the yellow love  LOL!  Ain't it great that we are all so different that is what makes us unique and fun!  And I was just having fun with this post as one persons dislikes may be alot of other peoples loves! 

I now feel better that I got to show my Yellow love!

Have a wonderful day and think YELLOW
