I had two long shelves in the kitchen...they were brown and I hated them...

...I've repainted them in white and that's the result...

...the antique French print looks lighter on white...

...handmade lanterns and a touch of green...ivy and chestnuts...

 a glass cloche...

...the other shelf with old copper pots and baskets...the horseshoe is for good luck...I'm a bit superstitious!
Have a nice and lucky new week!

The shelves look much better white and really shows off the print. I love your ideas...very creative. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I grew up in Europe and we did have some sort of dress up time, I think it was Carnival right before Lent.
