this has been a mammoth weekend of painting things white at our place. steve has been slaving away giving our walls a fresh coat of bright white paint. the colour is dulux whisper white, if you're wondering. i've been freshening up lots of the white painted furniture that was looking pretty shabby, not in a good way. so happy with the clean, fresh look.
you might remember this old dresser was a throw out across the road from another art deco building. it had probably been there since the late '20's early 30's. i dragged the old thing across the road by myself! in my excitement. it suits our old kitchen and looks like it's meant to be there.
the books & mismatched china are mostly found & collected from thrift shops & garage sales. i like how everything in here has a story & time worn character.
what do you like collecting?
It's a lovely piece and i do remember you dragging it over the road. Amazing the strength one has when they want something.ReplyDelete
As for what I love collecting, well just about anything that's vintage
I absolutely love this!ReplyDelete
I have some white painting plans this week but am feeling less than excited about it. Thanks for the inspiration......
What a charming cabinet! The springy colors of your dishes looks so pretty displayed on it.ReplyDelete
I love the cabinet but the little white tea pot with the fish on it has captured my heart. I collect things that delight me and I have a mish mash of colletibles.ReplyDelete
I love this! I'm actually looking for a little something for our kitchen either something like this or a pie safe that I could store our serving dishes etc. I love how your's looks! Nothing like a fresh coat of white!ReplyDelete
Not that I'm green with envy, but...I'd love to have a neighbor that put lovely pieces of furniture at the curb. love your collection too!ReplyDelete
Ahhhh.. I have an old vintage French cabinet..that needs some freshening up.... when I return home.. I now have plans! Thank you!ReplyDelete
Whisper White! You can't go wrong with it. I've used it for years that and strait white from the can. Love the cabinet.ReplyDelete
I wish that I could find a bargain like your white dresser - it's beautiful!ReplyDelete

It looks just beautiful!! I wish I was in the spirit of painting..., moldings in the house could all use a fresh coat of white paint.ReplyDelete
