Two Old White Makeovers

While I had the Old White open recently, I decided to paint two additional pieces I had picked up.  One was the little tote from GW that I shared.

The other was a small round wood board that I found at the local antique mart and which I have no before picture of.  Both got a couple of coats of the Old White chalk paint.

I was going to leave the tote plain and maybe add a graphic at a later date, but I thought that might be a problem to do after waxing.  So I found this graphic I had saved on my computer {I think it is from Debbie at Confessions of a Plate Addict.  Correct me if I’m wrong}.

I added the graphic to each long side.  Then did both clear and dark wax.

The round board got a French label graphic from The Graphics Fairy and clear and dark wax.

I love these wood boards in vignettes on a kitchen countertop.

This one would also work great as a base for a cloche.

The tote is coming with me to the Holiday Market, but the wood board is already in my Etsy shop. {SOLD!}

I love your pretty creations. That little tote is adorable. How did you transfer the graphic onto the pieces?

Good morning Kathy, Normally I love wood which isn't painted, but you have transformed the tote and wooden board. They look stunning, especially with the graphics. I think I am going to have to re-think my approach to wood. Best Wishes Daphne

Very well done, Kathy- looks awesome, per usual - you are always such an inspiration.

I am getting quite a collection of things to one day paint - I don't paint so am a bit nervous, and have never tried graphics...one day perhaps I can attempt it!

Have a great day!

Too cute- love the round as a cloche base! Wait til you see my latest cloche base- Debby thought I was absolutely nuts when I bought it at the barn sale last week. I'll have to post it after I get back from NC. :-)

These are both wonderful, Kathy. I especially love the round piece as a base for your cloche. I would have never thought of that. And, of course, I never met a tote or caddy I didn't have to revamp. Love the graphic. I saved it to my computer.

Kathy, I truly love the rabbit pictures you added above your mirrors in your eating area. It was just what the space needed! I always leave this wonderful place thinking, "I must attend to my own home!" Beautiful as always! E
