White Wednesday And A Little Memory Loss
I'm joining a party for the first time today. It's White Wednesday over at Faded Charm and I guess I never joined before because I didn't think I had alot of white in my home. But with the recent remodel of my master bedroom and sitting room, I've acquired some pretties in white that I think are worth sharing with you.
This lovely ironstone pitcher is perched on a white stand I borrowed/stole from my daughter's room (don't worry, I don't even think she noticed!).
These are just some old frames I got at yardsales/Goodwill that I sprayed the ever-famous Heirloom White and added to the same stand.
I love this ceramic cherub compote the best. I purchased it last weekend for a quarter at a yardsale and it was an ugly gold. I gave it the same spray treatment and VOILA!
Bear with me a moment, I'm having a brain cramp and can't think of the name of this thingie. Oh heck, I'll just call it a thingie. The right word will come to me in a few minutes and I'll change "thingie" to the right word, but for now, it's just "thingie". (Gosh darnit, I hate it when this happens to me and it's been happening ALOT lately!) How can I blog with such a horrible memory? Where was I? Oh, right, the thingie. I trashpicked thingie recently and you guessed it, sprayed it. WAIT!!!!!!!!!! I just realized something! Too much spraypainting has been affecting my memory! Note to self, wear a mask.
Added a few books and a birdie, cuz, why not?
Moving on. Another thingie, only this one really is a thingie, unlike the last thingie that really has a name. I bought this at the auction for $5 and my original intent was to add a round glass top to it and use it as a table, but I really didn't have a spot for that, so instead, I'm using it as a place to store my old issues of BHG. And even better, I didn't have to spray this one - it was already white.
Lastly, a snap of an old nightstand I also got at the auction for $5. It was old and dingie, so I painted it white and gave it some new/old crystal knobs I got at a yardsale for a buck. I love the French Provincial look of it.
Now, while I go to the drugstore to buy some Ginkoba, you go over and check out the other whites at Faded Charm. And would you please remind me once in a while to take my Ginkoba, cuz I'll forget.
UPDATE!!!!! Several minutes later...........DUH!!! PEDESTAL!!! It's a pedestal! Thingie is a pedestal! i knew it would come to me
