A Touch of White


 Recently while cleaning out an outbuilding we ran across this little step stool/chair that belonged to my MIL.  It was in horrible shape.  I'm sure she had placed it in the outbuilding with plans to 'fix' it later.  It was covered in rust, big chunky rust.  I sanded it the best I could, and spray painted it in heirloom white.  I absolutely love it.  It sits in the breakfast area at the home in South Ga.   (Please excuse the photography, I didn't have my camera and this photo was made with my IPhone and sorry for no before picture).  I was so excited to see what I could do with it I just started working on it and didn't think of a photo.  Do you remember these stools?



Please ignore the cord.  Like I said, no camera, and no "staging". :)

While we were having dinner that evening, my husband told me I should paint the little wire chicken white, too.
Here sits the chicken (thrift-store find) with it's metal color and brown eggs.



So yesterday, I carried her outside and painted her and several of her eggs heirloom white.  I kept a few of the eggs brown.  Isn't she pretty? 



I'll be linking to several parties this week.
