A Great Before and After: The Magic of White Paint

A picture speaks a thousand words.

How good is white paint!

and before...
These drawers are massive at 1.7m long and over 1m high. Lots of white paint was involved.

 We had our street party last night and I thought I'd be needing a sleep in but I was up early and have already painted a little side console, made breakfast and lunch (we are headed to a Christmas party and I'm taking a roast potato salad) and started making meatballs for our dinner as I know I won't feel like cooking after this afternoon.

I have got my energy and good humour back after a week of feeling less than ordinary. Thank god for that!

Have a wonderful day.

  1. Fabulous job, Fiona. Yes it is amazing what a good coat of white can do! Certainly took these oh-so-ordinary pine drawers into something completely classy. Hope your day goes well! The roast potato salad sounds fantastic! Sharing is caring.... ha ha. Cheers, Liz. :)

  2. I definitely agree that painting that horrible orangish color was a splendid improvement.
