White As Snow...

Have you ever watched one of the many redecorating shows where they have a limited budget to do over a room? And they find the most amazing vintage finds to add just the right touch? Many times when watching one of these inspiring programs, especially when they are in California, the designers go to a flea market that features huge sections of adorable painted furniture. I especially love the white painted ones. It seems that the white paint transforms the gaudy seventies round and ornately carved end tables into an eclectic work of art! Everything old and dingy is magically transformed with a nice coat or two!
I have been wanting to repaint my bedroom furniture white for over a year now, but the thought of taking everything out of the drawers and dragging it outside to paint seems like too much of a mess maker!
Maybe these pics will inspire me or some of you to take the "it will be worth the mess" plunge!
Soak me in your laundry and I'll come out clean, scrub me and I'll have a snow-white life.
Psalm 51:7


  1. I am getting ready to paint all my furniture white. I am not shy with a paint can though, and will paint my hutch on a whim. I just did the walls a lovely deep robins egg blue and now seem to NEED white furniture!

  2. Great pics. I'm diggin on color painted furniture but know what you mean when you say white makes a statement!!

  3. I too like white colour. It gives a sense of purity. Your blog is very nice. The images are very beautiful. Let us pray for peace for the world. Let us make the world pollution free and save it for our children. Wish you all the best. God is Great.
