After filling in some of the scratches and chips from years of love, she decided it needed an old-world makeover in yellow.

To mix up the perfect hue, she combined about 2 parts Fresh Mustard with 1 part Bee’s Knees.

She applied a coat of Limestone Glaze to help tone down the yellow a bit further and make the lovely details pop.

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.
