White Wednesday

Not everything in our lives gets a coat of white paint...



Sometimes we get rid of some of the white paint...

Because sometimes, less is more...
Less peeling...
Less doors...


and a lot more charm!...

This is the kind of pieces that are hard to let go...
but we must!
The ugly part of the business...
sight...

For some serious white inspiration,
visit Kathleen
at Faded Charm!

Woo - Hoo Wonderful!

BTW- since I can't find an email address for you ... I was hoping you will submit your Trader Joe's painted bags for the first Project Genesis I am doing on the 1st. I love them! They are exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for.

OH my... that cupboard is PERFECT for a spot I have in the dining room....and I need more storage and I want some of it to be hidden..so I would have left the doors ON...assuming there were two doors on it.

But we want it perfect for our own situation..and you have done it correctly for yours.

What a fun piece - so practical in so many rooms. It would look great with folded quilts or textiles or in a bathroom with towels - it's such a useful size, too.

What a fabulous little cabinet, I know what you mean about not wanting to let this piece go, I strugle with letting things go. I have to say this cabinet is a piece I would have to keep. I have a soft spot for white chippy painted cabinets or boxes with doors or drawers. Hope you get big money for it.

Hugs,
Melissa

LOVE what you did to the cupboard, Marcela! If I was anywhere closer I would snatch it up as it would be perfect in my basement studio space that I'm setting up. p.s. I don't know how you can part with these pieces?!!
