Everything Looks Better in White

My husband Erv and I have a running joke, how I believe you can take anything, paint it white, and it will look fantastic! I have tried to do something with this blog to make it look good and, not that I'm there yet, but . . . I just needed to paint-it-white!

I heard on a program, many years ago, that chefs love to use white plates to show off their creations well. I've always stood by this simple rule when it comes to serving up my own creations in the kitchen, but I've also kept it in the back of my mind whenever I look at a beat-up piece of furniture, longing for a new life. So when you're out at a second-hand shop or an antique mall, or happen upon a good yard sale, keep this simple rule in mind and you may end up with a diamond in the rough.
