Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

I LOVE White!, originally uploaded by Romantic Home.

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  I can't believe it's already July, this year is flying by so fast!  I took vacation days today and tomorrow so I could stretch my 3-day weekend into 5 days! 

Today the painters were here painting my staircase wall. It's the only place I wasn't able to paint myself because it's too high.  It was beige and I had them paint it white so it would look a little brighter up there.  I LOVE freshly painted walls and I even love the smell of fresh paint!  

I still need to rehang my mirrors but I can't decide if I should maybe not put so many up this time.  

I had planned on taking some new photos for show and tell today but the painters were here most of the day. It took 3 coats of paint to cover beige with white...who knew?  

So anyway, in honor of my love of white I thought I would share some of the white things around my home for Show and Tell today!

Hi Cindy!

I love the smell of house paint, too. I was disappointed when the last paint we used had "no odor." Dang!

Three coats? That must have been some stubborn beige!

As for putting back all the mirrors --- why not? Less is more? Bah, humbug! If you've got them, flaunt them.

Have a lovely holiday weekend.
