~INCREDIBLE VINTAGE HOTEL CABINET~
Most of us who love a softer color pallet know that as a neutral, white flourishes with any color.
~PERFECT FOR HOLDING VINTAGE LACE~
I've loved decorating with whites for a very long time now and for the past couple of months have been working behind the scenes on my own studio. More and more I'm scaling back my pink (don't freak...I STILL love it and always will!), opting instead to continue using it as primarily an accent color!
~GREAT FIND FOR $25.00~
I painted my studio walls out from their pale muted pink to my favorite Cottage White (Behr Paint from Home Depot) and I'm loving how the change has transformed the space.

Everything is lighter and brighter and full of calm.
~BEFORE A 'LIGHT' RE-PAINT JOB~
Although much of the room remains the same, I've also changed out a few other key things. I've DRASTICALLY DOWNSIZED the amount of fabric I have as I no longer have the desire to make those huge cottage style pillows or transform really large, bulkier finds...not for resale anyway (too expensive to ship!). I've decided I only want to spend my time making things I absolutely love (Cottage Pillows, Sachets, Gathering (Train) Cases, Painted Pretties, Decorative Bottles, Cards, etc.)...
I finally got around to working on a tiny little project that first drew me in last summer...
~TREASURED FINDS WITH A NEW PURPOSE~
Last July I blogged about some of the amazing finds I discovered while tag sale shopping here in Oklahoma. In that post I showed you a fabulous antique mail/key cubby I stumbled upon during one of my jaunts. Over the weekend I finished the second of two LIGHT coats of paint (skipped painting the inside!) and my Mr. AGPMan lovingly hung her in place!
Didn't it turn out wonderful?
The cubby is perfect for holding antique, vintage and older laces and I'm not even close to cramming her to capacity! Can't wait to show you what else I've changed in the room....that's coming soon!
Hope you are having a great Tuesday....more white transformations to show you later this week!
Love to you...
