I Am Loving White

Hello bloggy friends~
Do you love white? If someone was to walk through my home, they would almost get the impression that I loved white! Being a lover of romantic cottage decorating, I am loving white! And if it's shabbied up a bit, even better.

I'm sure the furniture guys thought I liked white when they delivered my new bedroom set the other day!

White coffee table and accent tables, white fireplace, etc. as they passed through the living room and down the hallway....

Wanna see?
OK, first I will show you the old set. This is over thirty years old and it was falling apart.

The headboard...

The dresser and other pieces looked like this. The colour of the headboard above is the true colour of the set. Very masculine and heavy. The mirror to the set is still in good shape so I will keep it and paint it along with the headboard. Both could be used in another room.

I have had my eye on this antique white set for quite some time {over a year}. I saw it in the store window and fell instantly in love! Much to my delight, Hubby surprised me by getting it for me a couple of weeks ago. Totally unexpected and I am thrilled!

The new mirror. Love the curves and the beveled glass....

The new headboard...

The new dresser. I really like the hardware....

What a difference the white makes! Our room is rather small so the white furniture just brightens it right up. Now, I just have to find the perfect bedspread and curtains. The spread and curtains are quite old so it's time for new ones. I am hoping to find something in toile. I'll let you know when I find them.

I'm joining Sherry today for her Home Sweet Home meme. Thanks for hosting Sherry!
