White Wednesday


I'm not sure why the old white, chippy paint calls my name. I will always pick up an architectural piece or a shelf or piece of furniture that has the look of time on it. You know, when the paint is chippy, maybe some rust, and just worn! I love that so much more than the freshly painted white pieces. Give me the beat up stuff any day! Below are a few of my favorite "whites" in my home that have been around the block a time or two!














It is always interesting to me what pulls us towards the stuff I pictured above? You know some people look at  it and think they only place it belongs is in the trash! Not me, it puts a smile on my face and warms my heart. I hope you will all stop by and pay Kathleen a visit! She always has the best "White Wednesday" photos ever! Enjoy your summer.

I am with you. Anything chippy is lovely. I love white but I also love when another color peeks through.
