No, your eyes don't deceive you, that is mustard yellow on the little drop leaf table. I bought the table and four chairs in the spring. After visiting a good friend and seeing what she did with an antiques hutch, I decided to go for it. Yellow is by no means my favorite color, but I do like it on this piece and it really stands out against the mahogany board and baton. Right now I am using it to store some extra wine and glasses as well as my silver chest but if the need arises I have enough room in the dining room to extend the leaves and seat extra guest.
I did a little distressing on both the table and four chairs, just enough to make it appear used over the years. The top chest is great for holding my stash of candles.

So what do you think? You may like it, you may not like it but I had to take the chance. Then there is one thing you can say for me, I'm not afraid of bold colors!
I did use the four chairs (and yes they are mustard) around my round oak table, I'll show that next week. Sorry the pictures are so bad, but I have never gotten a good picture in that room. I think it's all the dark wood and lack of natural light.
So let me know what you think! I'm anxious to hear your thoughts.
