White & a teeny tiny bit of colour

OK so I wasn't all that into white but this weekend EVERYTHING is being painted white... Well off-white but still 'white'. But then there will be one project to be posted tomorrow (if I keep up with my project update craziness) that won't be white. The projects are happenin' this weekend!

I finished the night table. It looks better... Maybe boring? Not sure. I was thinking I could have a FAB bedroom set - the night table, the dresser and one of the magazine racks - all updated in a shabby chic off-white with brass drawer pulls. We'll see if I keep them and stick to that plan!

The good thing about white is I can bring colour into my bedroom with a funky duvet cover or super snazzy pillows... Or uber kewl knick knacks... Well gee the world is my oyster! :-)

Here's a close up of the night table...

Here's a close up of the drawer pull I decided to use - it's from the Sechelt dump...

Tomorrow is going to be exciting! I pick up my free dining room table then my teak lamps will be done and I'll be painting one of the magazine racks. And then I have 'real' work to do... Bummer!

  2. Thanks! I really like how this piece turned out... Next I'll update my dresser and magazine rack then I'll have a super funky bedroom set. After that it's finding the right duvet cover. My bedroom will be pretty darn swanky soon enough!
