It's Fresh Mustard and it's from the Country Chic line of paints and it's the perfect colour for a statement piece in any room because it blends well with both traditional and modern decor. Let's start by taking a look at what this piece looked like before it's makeover. I apologize for the hard to see photo - this was the seller's photo because I forgot to snap a proper "before" picture.
I saw this piece come up for sale on a local Facebook sales group and ended up driving 40 minutes away to pick it up because I wanted to do a painted base with stripped and stained wooden top, but those plans fell through when I saw the sideboard. It was advertised as solid wooden piece but when I got there I noticed that it most definitely was not. This piece is made entirely MDF and it had and abundance of scuffs and blemishes. I usually try to stay away from MDF products because they can be tricky to repair and hard to get paint to adhere to, but this piece had potential and I was armed with a new pint of Fresh Mustard All in One Decor Paint that I was itching to try so...I brought it home anyway.
I took my time sanding down the raised bits where some water damage had occurred and then sealed the spots with tough coat to match the smooth texture of the rest of the piece before I tackled it with paint. I then painted 3 coats of the Fresh Mustard (all in one decor), sanded and lightly distressed everything before adding a thin layer of Furniture Glaze in Smoky Quartz. For those of you that have MDF pieces to refinish, I highly recommend the Country Chic All in One Decor paint and glazes. They painted over and adhered to the surface beautifully :)
