It was very dirty when I bought it and I was initially planning on painting it a soft french linen colour but once I cleaned it up I noticed how lovely the wood was. There was a very pale green tinge (like old copper) in the grooves and the bottom tray. So instead I just gave it the lightest whitewash and a wax top coat. I am loving how it looks much lighter.
The planter bowl is beautiful, isn't it. I bought it from Paint Me White when I was in Brisbane. It's lovely to own something from Sandy's booth. The lantern is from Haven & Space in Berry.
I didn't think that it would be something UNPAINTED that I'm falling in love with. But it's always good to mix it up, isn't it?
Do you have a piece of furniture you would never consider painting? I'd love to hear about it.
