happy place

hi..


this is another piece of furniture i'm liking a whole lot more now it's white. i thought about painting these vintage drawers blue or aqua, but sophie convinced me to keep everything white. she was right. 



guess who took a liking to this as soon as the quilt went on?




before..


see you later!

  1. Everything looks so much fresher with a coat of white paint. The perfect spot to take a nap for your cat.

  9. Definately a positive change, and can't say I blame that gorgeous cat a bit for curling up on such a cosy looking quilt.

  12. How are you doing that? I'm a novice. Is it paintbrush, or spray paint? I know people who have had good luck on wicker or wrought iron with spray paint; I imagine for wood furniture, you're using a brush. What a huge improvement over the old piece! I love how you decorate; it's not overdone, and it's enough to calm the eye rather than having to jump over too many objects in a room, which is the opposite of "restful." Just LOVE your blog; it's so soothing.

  13. The chest of drawers looks lovely painted white and the quilt on top finishes it off beautifully. I have a pine ottoman that I plan to paint. I want to bring it down from the bedroom and use it in the hall instead with a nice handmade patchwork cushion on top.
