White on White
Maybe because it’s about to snow, I woke up this morning thinking about white on white. With five of the next six days produced for light snow, my world here in Maine will turn into white on white slush.
White is the most popular color for painted furniture by a country mile. And it is surprising to me how well white furniture with white embellishments work.
I would have thought that some tone on tone, glitz, or other contrast would be significant. But… it turns out in the popularity contest of color white wins hands down even as an Efex color.
I have always had a big crush on these projects.
The first two pictures were customs pieces for clients at Maine Country Home.
The next picture shows off Efex at my house.
Now my house is very white! White walls, white furniture, etc. but I tend to gild our Efex projects because I have a love for the European gilding wax.
The slant top desk has a black glaze over a pure white base coat.
And the final frame is from my friend Janet Metzger at the Empty Nest.
All a little different but all very white on white.
