*White on White*
This week I thought I would join in on White Wednesday over at the lovely Faded Charm.
I thought I would simply show you some white on white that can be found around our home.
I do love white so & we have a lot of it in various shades around the house.
Above is one of the white-washed willow hearts I sell at the shop sat on our dresser alongside some simple white hooks.
I do love old postcards & have quite a collection going on, these are some of the ones I have that have been used & posted.
I love the old writing & reading the messages, some are so sweet.
You may just be able to see at the top an old silver candlestick which I painted in antique white eggshell & distressed, the table is our coffee table which was a lovely thrifty find, which I of course painted in Antique White & distressed slightly.
This is our telephone in the living room which sits upon an old sewing box that once belonged to my mother-in-law. I painted it in Craig & Rose's Regencey White & distressed the edges for that lovely old Shabby Chic look.
This is simply a small jug alongside a tiny jar. I painted the jar lid & then distressed the edges & rubbed a little oil paint on to age it slightly then popped a little wooden heart on top. There is a white vase from Sia in the background that my friend gave me & they are sitting upon part of an old desk that belonged to my husbands grandfather, it is a cabinet & was part of the side of the original desk. I painted it again in Regency White from Craig & Rose & distressed it & because it had been polished so many times it has this wonderfully lovely distressing going on which I just love. It sits beside an old chair which also belonged to my husbands grandfather which again I painted in a white eggshell & has a wicker seat. These all belong in our living room too.
And finally this is one of my glass bon bon jars which is sitting here in front of a pretty white faux flower wreath. They are placed upon a cabinet my husband made which I painted in Farrow & Ball's French Grey waxed & then painted again in Regency White & distressed wildly! These sit in our dining room.
I hope you have enjoyed the white on white from around my home & please do visit Faded Charm & all the other joining in on White Wednesday.
