A little peek before the "SHOW"

I hope you're not tired of seeing  chalk painted pots, since I created more for the "At Home with White" Show  (this coming weekend)

These one's are larger than the seedling pots in my last post so I wanted to do something different.
I'm happy with the way they came out, shabby with just enough chic
I also painted this little chest which has a wooden rod on the inside...perfect for hanging necklaces (or doll clothes if bought for a little girl)

The vintage bucket received  a coat of chalk paint, along with a "Fleurs" stencil~
I painted the mirror, which was dark brown.   Pardon the mess in the reflection.
(my drop cloths and paint rags) oops!
This Lane Chest got a makeover, along with a new seat cushion with vintage fabric. (Thanks Mom, for creating the cushion for me)

A sweet, generous in size wood tote...perfect for supplies of any kind.
And since I'm linking up to White Wednesday over at Faded Charm  with all my whites, I wanted to add these beautiful off- white roses that my cousin Pam gave me for my birthday. (which is tomorrow) 

Aren't they gorgeous?  She knows I LOVE my whites!
Next time I post, I'll have pics of all the treasures the Shop Girls brought in for the White Event, as well as some of my things that I haven't shown you yet. ....After all...this is just a "little peek"
Happy White Wednesday!

Oh, and I'm linking this post to French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday.  My first time joining the party! Thanks for hosting Courtney.
