It's funny how one thing leads to another and suddenly you have a collection that you didn't really mean to start. That collection for me just happens to be white stuff. And since I don't have a china hutch, my husband hung these shelves in the dining room so I would have a place to display all my pretty white things.
A vase that was etched with roses especially for our wedding holds a white candle. I won the framed print a few years ago and painted the plastic white frame to hold it. The white candlesticks are a thrift store find from years ago.
I always wanted a clamshell serving tray like this and I found this one at a vintage barn sale a few years ago. I could see myself collecting a bunch of these because they are great for decorating and for parties.
A sweet apothecary jar with a white metal stand and my altered gumball machine that I painted white and decorated with vintage jewelry finishes up the top shelf of white.
An empty frame is flanked by glass bulb jars that hold white coffee filter roses. There are 2 of those thrift store candle holders on either side of the shelf. The vintage salt shaker ornament was something I won a few years ago as well and I keep it out all year round.
This candelabra was a wedding centerpiece. I love the twisted metal and the crystals dripping off the candle holders. The key in the background was another thrift store find that I painted white and distressed. A vintage glass flower frog holds frosty white roses.
(Wow these shelves look dusty, but I promise they aren't...they are just stained. No one ever sees them from this angle!)
This clock had apples on it and wasn't too cute. Some white paint and a few bread dough roses and it is so much cuter. The dried rose on top is Cody's boutineer from our wedding day. The cast iron finials were purchased from 2 different places. My bouquet of roses candle holder has a sweet little ballerina sitting on top of it.
This candelabra was a bright shiny gold Home Interiors piece. My mom gave it to me many years ago and the first thing I did was paint it white. So much better! A tiny oval mirror sits inside a white frame to the side and a little pot of soft pink roses finish off the bottom shelf.
My white chicken wire shelf has a little vignette on top of it that I loved creating. A vintage scale, 2 altered vintage bottles, an old cabinet card and some wasp nests sit on an eyelet runner. Inside the cabinet are some treasured teacups and cookbooks.
This is my favorite wall in the house with all the pretty whites I have going on here. Although I don't love the green wall, I do love how well all my white treasures stand out on it. And of course, I am always on the look out for more pretty whites to add to my collection!
