I am a firm believer in the fact that white is a reflection of light. It may be the absence of color but it brings in so much positive energy to a room. An old timeworn piece of wood or metal gets a vibrant new look when given a nice creamy coat of fresh white paint!
This is a neat old drop table my daughter and I are working on. It began as black.
It is getting a transformation with white paint and some hand drawn and painted flowers.
