The yellow is a mis-tint that I had the guy at Sherwinn Williams just re-tint to a sort of buttery mustard yellow color. It's fairly neutral and has been a really sunny fun color to use. My daughter loves yellow so these will fit her sunny world just great.
She's also my beautiful little butterfly just flitting from one thing to another and blessing it with her happiness. I miss her so much.
The butterflies are from a Dover book I ordered online and then just photocopied the pages to cut and re-use over and over. I love the butterfly theme because there's so many colorful ones to choose from. I separated the cut outs into color schemes and then started just playing with the layouts. I wanted something different for each chair so that they each have their own personality. After cutting them out and deciding their placement I decoupaged them in place and then traced around them with a metalic pen, adding a few embellishments here and there. They're almost too pretty to sit on!!
Now the expensive part and real chore is to find quality sturdy legs or bases to install. I think these were bar tool tops because each of them has a plywood base underneath. I'm hoping to keep them the right height for a dining room table because we are giving Holly a nice walnut drop leaf table for her first home when she gets married. These will help set off the gorgeous walnut and be a fun showpiece in her home.
