feeling Blue, Numbered, and a little Striped

When it comes to painted furniture, there are 3 things I love:
1. Blue paint
2. Numbers
3. Stripes

These three things are often seen on our WhiteBerry items, and are somewhat of a 'signature look'. They all add a touch of fun and keep things from feeling too serious. I don't have any stripes to share (today at least!), but lot's of blue and numbered items.

Like these stools for example. I only found 2 of them, knew I wanted to number the seats...

But 1 and 2 would have been pretty predictable. It makes absolutely no sense, but I like the look of 2's and 4's, so that is what I painted on the seat.

I think these are the first stools we have painted. But they were very popular and I kind of fell in love with them too so I am sure they won't be the last.

I hadn't numbered anything in a LONG while and the stools rekindled my obsession, so this dresser got both the blue treatment as well as some vintage enamel numbers.

When it comes to vintage numbers, you often don't have a choice of numbers, so you take what you can get. LONG ago I used the 1,2,3 on Wren's dresser/change table, so we had to pick up with 4-8 on this one.

Continuing on the blue theme... like I previously mentioned, I have wanted to paint a blue china cabinet for ages. My biggest reservation was that it is a pretty big commitment to one color. But we had a china cabinet topper that we found for free and a random dresser to put it on so we decided this was our opportunity to give it a try.

You will have to excuse the patched drywall in this shot since this was taken just after our wall was repaired, but before it was painted.

I never even got around to installing the hardware on this one before my sister snatched it up and took it home. I am hoping she finishes up the final touches on her living room/dining room so I can take you on a little tour soon. It is VERY anthro-chic and I think she spent under $600 for EVERYTHING in there, a good inspiration to realize it doesn't cost much to get a high-end look.

And the final installation in today's WhiteBerry post is a fabulous headboard.

It is rare that we do beds. When we do them they are usually custom jobs for little ones graduating to their first big-kid bed. So a glamorous queen headboard was pretty fun! The last queen sized headboard was also for my sister (in a bright yellow), so everyone go over and hassle her to finish painting her bedroom if you want to see it!!!!

The body pillow on the bed was one of my favorite purchases on our holiday. I found it in a clearance bin at Kohl's for $12, originally priced at $69.

Maybe it will consitute the 'striped' portion of our post today!

Hoping your day isn't blue at all!
