“Simplicity is the natural result of profound thought.” (Anonymous)



“Less is more.” (Mies Vander Rohe)  



“Nothing is more simple than greatness; indeed, to be simple is to be great.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Matthew 18:2-3

He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven

  1. I LOVE SIMPLE, period! Can you explain further how you painted this chest? You said you added "chalk" in the paint....meaning chalk sticks crushed? or powder chalk? Sorry, if I sound naive! I did see a home recipe on The Vintage Farmhouse the other day instead of buying expensive CHALK PAINT! Thanks! I love the chest, it's adorable!! Blessings~~~~Roxie

    1. Hi Roxie ~~ Yes, simply crush some sidewalk chalk, add a tad amount of water to dilute and stir into paint. I liked how it turned out so hopefully you will enjoy something simple like this too. Blessings to you and thanks for visiting.
