Washed In Nordic Whites

"The sun shown out with fairer light."

I recently white-washed our vintage farmhouse table.  We have had this table since the beginning of our marriage.  There are drawings on the underneath side by my children.  It is the gathering table for our family, where our hearts remain together.  I have wanted to white wash the raw wood for a long time.  I did the wash light so that the wood grain still shows through.   The washed whites create a calm coolness for the Summer.   I have brought out the white cotton linens to go with the scattering of  seashells and driftwood.    

So begins May...
