My very first White Wednesday

It thought I would give White Wednesday a go this week..everything is lighter and happier now that
Spring is here and it's time to make the doughnuts paint the furniture.....tee hee~
This is usually when I start painting like crazy just like the rolly polly doughnut maker from the old Dunkin Doughnut commercials...at least that's how I begin to feel, trying to get all the painting in before the weather turns humid here on the East Coast.   
Here's a few (mostly) white pieces from last years mania.

This piece was actualy quite the ugly duckling before it's creamy white make over. It now
resides with Ms. Courtney Love who scooped it up as soon as I listed it on etsy. Quite the surprise for me.
 

Finally the twins....two of my fav. shabby re-do's.
so glad you stopped by ...and many thanks to our 

Thanks Kathleen for all your inspiration! 
PS I am extending my giveaway until Friday....had a crazy week and there's so many entries I want to be sure they're copied and accounted for...before the drawing......

  2. Oh my...."she" would have LOVED to have gotten ahold of the piece you listed on Etsy. Yep, that would have been a keeper. Good thing she didn't she it. And the dresser with the robin's egg blue is wonderful as well. I think you should do the donut, er...I mean the White Wednesday thing more often!

  10. Morning Beth, Funny how we associate Spring with painting and white is usually the color of choice.

    Happy Wednesday.

  23. I falling in love with white furniture. I'm doing my first vintage bedroom. Three lushious whites.

    Yours looks great. I wish I could see how you get the edges to look like that.

    Great job!
