Green to White

I am aiming to get my living room as white as I can without it looking sterile and lifeless. One project I needed to get done in this process was to paint a small green table that I had bought off ebay. I couldn't live with the green for too long so covered it with some fabric in the meantime. Yesterday I finally got around to painting it and then decided to also paint an urn that I have. I have been wanting to paint the urn for some time but have always had some hesitation... now it's done, I am relieved that it turned out as I had envisaged, and I love the way it now contrasts against the greenish glass. It will all look so pretty when I get the fairy lights on the branches fixed and working.

The table and urn look fabulous. You know my opinion - you can't have too many white painted things! Leigh

Yep, I am definately liking the white, you know me, my husband says "if it doesn't move she paints it white".

Thank you for visiting my blog and the lovely comment you made.
