Chartreuse is a tricky color!

I attempted a chartreuse nightstand and I think I failed. The shade isn't quite right. It's too yellow. So, it's back to the paint chips. I need to find a chartreuse/citron green that is more green than yellow, but isn't too fluorescent and has some warmth to it. If you have any paint color recommendations, let me know!

    There's a great Sherwin Williams color called "Citronella" that we used on our living room walls (talk about risky!). The paint chip looks really yellow, but the color is more chartreuse!

    It needs a bit of black maybe. Just on the front of the drawers and top. If you don't like that idea I would do a graphic black stencil on it.
