Cait from Little City Farmhouse created this beautiful home office space with Vanilla Frosting, Fresh Mustard, and natural wax. Come read all about it!

Hello Country Chic Paint Readers!

I have a fun project to share with you today! I recently travelled up to see my brother and his wife and to paint her desk and chair in their little office nook.

We wanted the mustard yellow to match the yellow in the fabric she chose for her chair, so I mixed a small amount of Vanilla Frosting into Mustard Yellow (both the All in One paint) until we achieved the colour we wanted. I add a little at a time and mix until I find the exact shade I want. We added about 1 tablespoon Vanilla Frosting to 3/4 cup Mustard Yellow.

The desk got two coats of paint. When it was dry I sanded it and slightly distressed the edges. I waxed it with Clear Wax, even though the All in One paint doesn’t require a top coat. Since it is a highly used area, I wanted that extra bit of protection!

The chair got three coats of Vanilla Frosting in the All in One paint. I opted not to top coat the chair as it won’t receive quite as much wear as the desk.

The desk and chair together look fantastic! The Mustard Yellow really pops in the space, and I am thrilled with how they turned out!

Cait {Little City Farmhouse}

Hello! I’m Cait! I am a wife and a mom of two little ones, and a proud auntie of a growing little flock! I first started by refinishing several pieces in my own home, and fell in love with it. Slowly it turned into a business and something I could do from home. I love the thrill of finding old furniture, and I adore the process of refinishing it into something new and fresh. Refinishing furniture is the heart of my business. I believe your home should reflect who you are, and I love helping people get the look they want in their homes by refinishing their furniture for them.
