Master of Disaster
Did you need a refresher on the power of white paint?  Probably not.  If you are like me, you actually keep more cans of white spray paint on hand than emergency supplies.  In case of a disaster, I may not have water bottles or Band-aids, but I will be able to make outdated stuff fabulous!  Like, for instance, my ’emergency’ cans of creamed corn that expired in 1997!
So here’s a whitened and brightened little coffee table from Lindsay at Country Girl Home.  


And Teresa woke up this tired and tarnished buffet with a few coats of white, which I think really makes the details on the doors stand out. Didn’t even notice ’em before. Lovely! See this and more on her blog Teresa’s Tag Sale.

    Tee-hee! Love the idea of paint in your emergency supplies 😉 Yes, my water barrel is still empty, but I always pick up an extra can of “heirloom white” just in case!

    That coffee table looks just like mine, which I recently repainted with cream on the bottom and charcoal on top. The buffet is gorgeous! ~Pepper

    Isn’t it amazing how white paint can make something look so much more expensive?! Both look absolutely lovely.
    I went through my cupboard the other day and found something with a use-by date of 2001, which is peculiar because we moved into our house in 2004. Why I felt inclined to take it with me from my old house I don’t know. I was up the duff (pregnant) at the time so maybe I can blame it on baby brain.

    I seriously just bought that coffee tables twin this past weekend… w/ plans to spiff it up with ASCP in Old White. This is just a confirmation that it’s going to look fabulous!
