Because Painted Wood is Pretty

by Edie Wadsworth on April 30, 2009

As promised, here are a few of my favorites from the “Because Painted Wood is Pretty” linky party.  To see my new kitchen and all of the links, go here.
This is my friend Kelly’s house. She lives in a beautiful house in the historic district of town and if I could go take these doors off the hinges and bring them back here, I would. I would have nowhere to put them, but I’d take them anyways. Aren’t they gorgeous?
Then, there’s Sarah’s piece, which she painted and then added fleur de lis. Love IT!
And Annicole’s kitchen, which is TODIEFOR!
You mark my words (I used to love to hear my ‘mamaw’ say that) I will paint something this color before summer is out. I love this changing table from A Familiar Path.
And this is where TidyMom keeps her TRASH. I would crawl up in this beautiful primitive piece and sleep. She has other beautiful painted projects that you should go see. 
You must see this beautiful transformation at Saucy’s Sprinkles…or as they call it in the business….this ‘flip’. The whole project is amazing. You’ll have to check out the whole house.
I’ll conclude with the only kitchen that has more blue and looks more retro than mine:
Thank you all for sharing. If I featured your project today and you’d like a copy of The Verity CD (my son’s band) just send me an email! You can hear them play here.
The boys are playing at the World’s Fair Park in Knoxville tomorrow.  We’re all pretty excited about that.  Taylor is graduating with first honors so I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures at the banquet and at Honor’s Day tomorrow!
I was pondering showing you my modest bathroom redo, but it’s sure to be quite a let-down after the kitchen. I’ll probably show you anyway. Stay tuned!

I am a HUGE believer in painted wood – in fact it is almost mandatory for all wood things that enter my house : )

GREAT links. I am ALL about some painted wood…and painted brick…and painted plastic. I just can’t get enough. It gives your things such personality! And, YES absolutely we want to see your bathroom redo. Every project doesn’t have to be earth shattering, right? Just as long as it makes you smile!

Girl we are kindred spirits, cause I paint EVERYTHING! Spray paint is my very bestest friend (especially Krylon’s Ballet Slipper pink — I think I’m addicted!)

I hope you host another party real soon, cause the last one was just too much fun! I’ll help ya clean up anytime!

Oh I am so glad I found your blog because I just love all the beautiful painted things. I do not currently have one piece of painted furniture in my house and that is about to change. I am on a mission to paint a lot of things. Thanks for hosting such a fabulous event. I’ve loved every picture. Hugs, Marty

Oh I am so honored to be featured- and I’d love a copy of their cd.

Ohmyword! I just read your ‘Southern Woman 101′ and laughed so hard I was almost craying!! Ok i know im a ‘northerner’ (and have resented living in swampland) but I lived in Arkansas and Florida 4 yrs altogether and LOVED it!! I love the style, the big hair, the drawl, and most amazingly, the one thing i sadly learned from moving home is the southern boys are charming and gentlemanly! Most of the guys around here are so crude and crass that u wonder if they killed chivalry themselves. I did manage to find the most wonderful ‘Northern’ boy myself (seriously i still can’t believe i didn’t have to fight off a dozen girls for him) Now i do love my hometown but since i have friends in SouthCarolina, Georgia, Arkansas and Fl…and my husbands family comes from Kentucky and Tenn…that I LOVE my southern trips!!! :) btw, I LOVE your blogs! Keep it up! You’re a breath of fresh air!

Glad you hosted the party. I didn’t really have anything to offer… yet, but I enjoyed your kitchen so much and the projects of all of the others.
I have been inspired.

Hi – I just found your cute blog. I love painted furniture, and obviously painted cabs since I just painted mine a pretty green. :-)

BTW, I am having a “Porch and Patio Party!” this coming Tuesday, if you’d like to join in. There’s always room for another Southern 9and non-Southern) friend.

Love the green changing table , even though I’m WAY past changing tables! Love your blog!


12 Cindy April 30, 2009 at 11:32 pm

I paint everything…sometimes twice. Painted some vintage folding chairs different colors…decided that I like the black one the best SO, will most likely break out the spray paint soon and they’ll all be black….unless I do them white…but I sure liked some of the blue in your pictures here…what to do what to do….


13 Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality May 1, 2009 at 12:20 am

Oh, Edie, I just read Southern Women & love you even more now. Truly spoken, my dear!


14 Ruby Red Slippers May 1, 2009 at 1:58 am

Seriously… how have I never seen your blog before????? I need to pour over it for the next few day! Nice to meet you! jennifer

I’m going to tackle my kitchen this summer, as soon as we finish remodeling our guest bath.
Thanks for hosting the party, it was fun!
I’m having a chalkboard paint party next Friday. You should definitely come play!:)

Just found your website and wanted

in black I think it was under Saucy’s Sprinkles but unable to go
to that website or is there one?


18 Sarah May 1, 2009 at 8:45 pm

Edie, Thanks again for featuring me. I look forward to participating in another party with you soon. You're such a great inspiration! God Bless ya'll!! :>


19 Jen - Balancing Beauty and Bedlam May 2, 2009 at 2:22 am

Edie – what a blast your blog has been…it’s been hopping and I can honestly say that your kitchen post is one of my fav blog posts of all times. :) But as you said, you must be exhausted trying to be hostess with the mostess.
Love it!!


20 Angie Seaman May 2, 2009 at 10:57 pm

Thanks for all of these links. Everything is so beautiful. I actually just posted images of my kitchen on my own blog today in regards to a kitchen blog tour that Kelly’s Korner is doing. It’s so fun to see everyone’s ideas. I just stumbled upon your blog today via Southern Hospitalitys (which I just found today as well) and will definitely be back to both. :)

Blessings, Angie Seaman (blog) (website) (photography blog)
