I agree. I paint almost everything. I do keep some wood pieces for contrast but I would say 90 % of my stuff is white and that is before everybody started doing it. One trick, you know those huge candlesticks, you get them at Hobby Lobby @ 80%. If they are grand I buy them. I paint them white glaze them and then I can charge what ever I want because they look wonderful and make such a statement. Blessings, Marta.

It looks beautiful - did you sand and prime first or just paint right over the metal?
