Cottage White

I did some painting recently for a friend and as a thank-you she gave me this cute little table.

I have no before pic, but in it's former life it was brown and now it's white.  Cottage white.
Accessorized with lots of color!!

Fun, fun, fun.

About a week later I found a vintage kitchen cabinet on Craig for a steal.  This time I remembered to take a before picture.  But then a certain teenager decided to borrow my memory card for a school trip and long story short - it's gone baby gone.  So just close your eyes and imagine a dull, brown, boring cabinet.  Now open your eyes!

I painted it white.  Cottage White.  And in between coats I took a lunch break where I got Pinspired to paint the back of the cabinet a different color.

Overall I think these two are a great addition to the family.....room.  Whatdya think?

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulicious week!

What great cottagey looking pieces, Kim! You can't go wrong with a coat of white paint for that cottage look.

Kim, Both pieces are perfect and I love the cabinet painted vintage green on the back side. Your quilts and flowers look darling on the piece. I am envious you found such a great treasure. Thanks for sharing at the Cain!

I love the whole look of the room, Kim...white with bright pops of color. Very refreshing! You did a wonderful job with the table and cabinet and I love your rug!

Oh I would LOVE to find a piece like that first little table. I recently saw a desk on a blog that had spindly legs like your table and Ive not been able to get that style out of my head since.
Have a blessed Easter weekend, by the way!
