White paint makes everything look better

Remember the little love seat I got from a second hand store?

It only cost $79. I adore its shape, but not its color. It had a skirt on, but I took it off, I adore those little legs. I've been wishing this sofa were covered in white vinyl, but there's no way I would pay for that.

Well, after seeing the blogosphere's famous John Derian sofa (see below), I started thinking about painting it. I'm not afraid to put paint on anything. And if it cracks, so what? Since it's falling apart, it's ripe for experimentation.

So here it is with one coat of paint. It's going to need another coat, but I won't be able to get to that until next weekend.

Of course, I can't stop moving around accessories. And notice the ottoman? I painted it too! It looks so much better. You may remember what it used to look like.

I think it looks so much better in the glossy white! It had some imperfections, which I covered with Glidden gripper.

I finally finished painting my dining set. It looks like new with a fresh coat of shiny white paint.

Ahh. Wish I could paint the floor white. When I buy the prefab house of my dreams, the floor will be white.
