" Renovated Whites "



RENOVATE

{to make new or like new}

So much of the Dior home furnishings

are repaired, restored or recycled...






{Vintage items transformed into stylish pieces}




{Wall Art from produce flats}





Since I use a neutral pallet

everything works throughout our home...






{ love adding vintage shutters }






A "pop" of black and white





{ Chalk Black and white }




Salvaged Whites old windows




Rustic Whites with reclaimed wood




I will be linking this week to

some of my favorite gals in blogland...








{ old wood planter box placed on the buffet}





Much love to all of you!

Have a beautiful week!
XOXO

Hi Kate well you have done it again...You need not hear me tell you so often how inspiring moving your home is and how I wish to sit and visit in your home taking in all the beauty that lives with you. Your vignetts are so spot on with just the right mix it truly doesn't het any better then this :)

Oh to answer your email, You are welcome to my high desert anytime, and we will me someday soon, I just know it :)

Talk with you soon.
Can't wait to see what you come up with next, and how you will top this post. I am still looking for some sort of blistered and peeling paint finished chest like yours. I need something so old something that anchors my home of all pale and neutral.

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

So beautiful Kate! With all this heat, I've got a bunch of dry branches outside. You make me want to grab them and start decorating -- but my husband would think I was nuts. Ha! Hmmm, well he already thinks that since I collect rocks and crochet little jackets for them. :) Best wishes for a beautiful day. Blessings, Tammy

Denise at PinkPostcard. said...

I did a double take on that dresser- I am currently working on one just like it! I just stripped the top of the old wood. I love how you kept it. Mine was previously stored in a barn and had oil stains on it, so I didn't think it was salvageable. But....I may explore the possibility of not fixing / restoring as much as I'd thought.... :) thanks for inspiring me.
