White Upstairs Hallway

My house is overstuffed with furniture, so every time I buy a new piece I feel even more guilty because I know its being squeezed in somewhere just to accommodate it.  Sometimes it doesn't even fit in, but it has to go somewhere…

Such was the case with this buffet…

It was brown, but not so nice, so I sanded/stained/varnished the top and painted the rest in Anne Sloans pure white chalk paint.  I very lightly sanded it, but haven't yet waxed.  I'm not convinced I'm waxing yet…just living with it for a while…looks like it still needs something…Any suggestions?

Here it is with the chippy white columns I bought at the last Christie antique show.  

I need something on top of the pillars.  Maybe I'll cut some of my hydrangeas and make an arrangement.  Only, I hate to cut my hydrangeas!  I love the big floral bushes so much.

Each head is its own bouquet!  So lovely!  I have to wait till they start to age before I can cut them!  They are just too amazing!  

Have a great day!!

  1. Where to start. Oh, the gorgeous window at the top of your stairs!!!! It's breathtaking! Your buffet looks great the way it is, to me. And your chippy columns would look fabulous with Annabelle hydrangeas on top. Our AH only have teenie tiny blossoms just starting. I like to cut them when the flowers are slightly green and they stay that way for almost a year when they are dried.

    I want that window. :@
