white wednesday project ..

do i need to sign up for the white wednesday group? and where do i get the logo that everyone has on their blog that does white wednesday? .. anyway, i did a white wednesday project .. i painted a little night stand a soft linen white and accented it with shells and then distressed it .. i think it turned out pretty sweet .. it's headed to ZAPP and warrenton ...

please excuse how fuzzy the above photo looks - it didn't look fuzzy when i took the pic ..

i thought the little cross added a certain appeal to the piece .. i don't know, it just called out for the cross .. so it got one ..

i am very pleased with the way the distressing turned out ...

hope everyone had a good wednesday .. doing a little better myself .. one foot in front of the other.. looking forward to ZAPP and warrenton .. today i unpacked a crate full of alabaster i forgot i had .. everything from little vases to boxes to lamps and bowls ... i just get more excited everyday .. tomorrow i am back to pricing and packing .. yuck .. hey, didn't realize i had missed the season start of flipping out .. didn't realize it was coming back .. so i have been catching up on the show .. love jeff and his way of rationalizing his quirks .. he is so funny .. love zoila also ..
laterZ, troy


  1. I just watched this show for the first time last night, cracked me up, I love him and his wit! Ok, now you are bringing some awesome things, I'll be standing in the tent waiting on you. And for White Wednesday, contact Kathleen at Faded Charm, she's on my blog.

  2. I'd love for you to join in on all the white goodness. I'll add your name to my list of participants and you can post anything white on Wednesdays when you have time. If you want you can add the logo from my sidebar to your blog to let more people know about it.

    I love how your nightstand turned out and am so envious of all you guys going to Texas. Maybe someday I'll make it. Hope you have lots of pics to show all of us who miss out.

    Take care,

  3. Great nightstand and yes, it did scream for the cross! I feel certain it won't still be there when I arrive on October 1st, but we will see. I have never even heard of that show...I will have to look it up.

  4. Hey Troy, nice to see your face over here! Your nightstand is awesome. I love how you distress things. What's your secret?... and the shells and cross are perfect. Really adds so much!

  5. Yeah, you do the best distressing I've ever seen! Mine look like I just took a piece of sandpaper to it at the last minute (go figure).

    Do a post on it!!!!

    You'll sell out at Zapp, I swear.

    P.S. Zoila is the best on Flipping Out. How could you have missed the premiere? Jeff is nutZ, and Jenni is well on her way.... hate to say it.

  6. I'm with Debra, I would LOVE to know your painting and distressing techniques. That nightstand is perfection. What paint brand/color did you use? That's the color I've been looking for. So glad to hear you're feeling better! :-)
