I want to say thank you for all the wonderful comments that were left on my last post ~ you are all so sweet! I am still celebrating!
It has been no secret that I have wanted to do a mini makeover in the princess suite.
Of course I wanted the room to stay clean for a while so I could actually tackle the project.
That never seemed to happen (hey, I'm keeping it real!).
Then, I finally realized that the furniture that was in the princess suite was actually making it hard for her to keep it clean! She needed more drawer space so we went to Ikea and purchased a few bureaus for her room.
The princess and I love Ikea and we had a fun day shopping together!
The room is still a work in progress and I hope to share it with you soon.
For now I will show you what has departed the suite.
This lingerie chest is now patiently waiting for the white show at the shop...
The old cupboard is waiting for my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint makeover (yes, I finally bought some) and the vintage vanity has been safely stored in the attic for her very own first nest...
This old beauty is in my booth at the shop right now...
Just waiting for the next princess...
A few other small pieces have left her room as well, all headed for the white show.

Today for White Wednesday, I am back to dreaming in vintage whites with the help of Joanna from Design Shuffle.
She has put together a dreamy post full of vintage whites for me to share with you beginning with inspiration from my friend Sandy from My Shabby Streamside Studio.
Don't forget ~ another one of Sandy's beautiful mirrors is for sale in my booth!
Take it away Joanna...
Hello. I’m Joanna, a writer for Design Shuffle, a premier online portal centered around interior designers and their work and design enthusiasts' interests. I stumbled across A Cottage Muse recently and fell in love with the theme of “vintage white.” Thanks for letting me share some of my favorite chippy white pieces with you today! Chipped white paint on wood and wrought iron makes for a romantic element indoors and out. Think weathered and rustic dining suites, iron daybeds and ornate mirrors. Distressed white paint is often related to the shabby chic style. Following are a few of my favorite pieces along with decorating ideas for using them.
A tiny gingerbread house is the perfect space for shabby chic furnishings such as this tall mirror and rustic Victorian shelf.
Interior doors add a nostalgic touch when left with white chipping paint and patinaed door hardware.
A distressed, rustic kitchen table is accompanied by rustic seating and a built in china hutch.
Another rustic kitchen table and lovely chippy white side chairs make for a romantic eat-in kitchen.
What’s not to love about this incredible bedroom design? The columns and ceiling, in a rustic finish, inspire many decorating ideas.
A weathered white fireplace mantel is a lovely element in a shabby chic room. The mantel would look beautiful as a headboard as well.
Chipped white paint can give a romantic element to wrought iron pieces outdoors. Love this daybed!
Weathered cabinets accompany an apron sink for storage and a place to keep toiletries. We don't often see such a wonderfully large sink in bathroom designs. The tiny windows with molding are adorable.
