Soft, Lovely, Easy, Old White

 
 
Without a set game plan in mind, I opened up a new can of Old White yesterday morning.  I didn't even have to think, really...I just grabbed pieces from the garage that were ready for paint and went straight to work.  Just about anything looks good in Old White.
 
 
I have such an array of colors in my booth space right now.  Adding some white will help soften and unite the overall look.
 
 
Of course a pop of color on the inside of a drawer is always a fun surprise!

 
This little table was nothing special..in fact I didn't think too much of it when I bought it.  I figured it would be nice for a table top display, but I wasn't really excited about it beyond that.  Once it had been painted in Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan and waxed to a soft sheen, it became so elegant...now I kind of hate to part with it!

 
This lovely old frame received two coats of Old White and then was lightly distressed to show a bit of the gold underneath.
 
 
While we are on the subject, I thought I would go ahead and share a few pieces I have previously painted in Old White.  There are many more, but these are my favorites.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


 I am looking forward to adding some new found treasures to my booth space!  Some will be harder to part with than others!  Having lovely photos to remember them by always helps me feel better about saying "au revoir." 
 
 
I picked up some great old books with fabulous graphic covers.
 
 
I will be adding many more pieces to my flatware selection!  I just love these pretty butter pats.
 
 
 
I will do my best to post some photos on Facebook of my booth space all freshened up with my newly painted pieces and recent vintage finds, so be sure to join me there!
 
 Thank you so much for your sweet visit today! 
 
Have a lovely weekend!
 
Best Wishes and Blessings,
Amanda

  4. Amanda, I LOVE your latest projects!! Just beautiful. I really love the first table and the trestle table. The books you found are really nice! I love displaying old books around my home. I hope you and your family are having a great Summer! Here's a link to a post I did with my daughter Olivia's photo shoot. Thanks again for all your help with my ASCP questions. Everyone that see's the nursery loves how I painted the furniture in her room! Love, Jamie
