White Makeovers

I've been working hard trying to get some inside projects ready
for my Open House before the weather warms and I need be
outside working on furniture makeovers.
Here is a tray I found at Goodwill some time back.  In this
picture I have already sanded the tray.

And here it is after it received a coat of dark stain, two coats of white
paint, and heavy distressing.

Here is a pedestal in it's before state. . .

and the after. . .
I'd love to find a cloche for this pedestal to complete the look.
Everything I have is either too big or too small.

And here they are combined to make a lovely spring green vignette.

It's nice to finally have something actually done for the show.
I have so many projects in process that sometimes it feels like
I'm not getting anywhere.  I'm trying to tag everything when it's finished
so I'm not in a pricing frenzy right before the show.  
I love all the textures in this vignette from the wood to the pedestal,
the nest and fern, and the pretty wing design on the little bird.

Time to do some tagging and then outside on this lovely warm Sunday
afternoon to sand some furniture.

Fantastic display. I love everything about it. I wish I could come up with great ideas like this ... just not that creative, I guess.
