Painting Wood White Wednesday

A sad, dreary writing organizer got a new look this week. This was a thrift shop find and I almost missed it because it was so dark and lighting is usually dismal at these stores. Out came the white paint and wow, I'm loving this piece.

I put it on top of a table to hide all of my goodies in. Doesn't everyone have seeds and plants on their tables? And bits of fabric, paper and lace? Tea and a teapot?

I also found a paper mache box that held 6 smaller boxes and a spool of thread fits neatly in it. They would also be good for button collections and to hold seeds.

These vegetables I have to plant today. They are beets and their foliage is a gorgeous burgundy. Their name is less lovely, Bull's Blood Beets. After I plant these it will make room for something else pretty and leafy on my table.

The before picture. The way the sun is reflecting off of it it looks lighter. Under our pines trees is where I painted it and now when you look out the window you see "white clouds" there on the ground where I've been spraying bits and pieces of furniture white.

Don't you agree it looks much better white? I am linking over to fadedcharmcottage for her White Wednesday fun. Do link over for some inspiring painted white items.
