White Wednesday (a little bit of everything!)

I apologize for this mish mosh of a White Wednesday but.....this pile of white is stressing me out bad! I have 20 pieces to distress and stain for Saturdays sale.

I was hoping to have 'after' pics of everything for this post but it didn't happen. Maybe next week, right? It is going to be really cute tho. Shabby white with some robins egg blue accents, also my standard black & white and a whole lot more.

This collection of mysteries are so cute, I love the covers. They just scream Halloween!
I love accent lights and sconces of any kind. I think this one was once an outdoor light. I have the amethyst bulb cover that came with it, but I opted for one of my vintage style Edison bulbs. The finish on it is perfect chippy white.
When fall rolls along I swap out wall art too. I take down all of my flowery prints & paintings & replace with wintery themes. I especially love cottages in the snow, this cutie came with this wonderful frame.
I used the black & white Halloween theme throughout my house this year instead of traditional orange & black.
Some of my favorite things, dingy old mirrors, chippy frames, lace, urns, birds nests and skulls.
Kidding!
Close up of a tin shelf in my living room, LOVE old tin tiles. I would love to use them as a back splash in my bathroom. I wonder if the humidity would cause more rust? Has anyone tried it?
A pile of curvy goodies waiting to finished for my sale. They are all plastic! It's funny how paint, sanding and stain can fool the eye.
That's it for this weeks White Wednesday, thanks again to Kathleen our awesome host! Check out her blog Faded Charm for other great participants.

I always think the tough part is over when I finish painting a piece, but distressing it and "umbering" over it takes a lot of time!! Good luck with your big sale :)

Love the black and white Halloween!

I like the look of black and white for Halloween but would have to start all over with my decorations since most of what I now have is the 'orange' look. *sighs* but I do like the new look.
