The life of this hutch... I picked up this hutch at a garage sale last year.  It wasn't expensive and I would describe it as 'primitive' which means totally beat up with a high awesomeness factor.  It was blech blue, so I repainted it to look like this:

I love the copperish pulls & the storage is great.

Added a little detail to the drawers.

Now I really did like this hutch.  It reminded me of furniture we saw in Italy (I had to throw that in there - wink, wink).

It lived happily in my den filled with video games, DVDs, exercise gear, etc. until I mentioned to my mom that I was going to sell it because we're clearing space for new furniture and remodeling the den.  She was like...uh, sell it?!  I want it!  So there ya''s mom's now.  I repainted it for her and it's moving out this weekend.  Here's the new look:

A clean white French country look. It will fit right in at mom's!

I like the wood planks on the side.

I love using color on furniture but white really makes knobs & pulls pop.  

I was playing around with old paperbacks the other day. I've seen quite a few altered books used as decorations & I was trying my hand at it.  I really liked this shape and stuck in the bookcase - done!

So, this weekend we have friends visiting from PA and we're tripping the light fantastic with them. I'm not finishing any more projects for a few days, so I'll be bloghopping!  I hope you all have a great weekend & thanks for coming by!

I'm linking to FFF at Miss Mustard Seed's and SNS at Funky Junk Interiors.  There's a lot of cool stuff over there!



  1. You never cease to AMAZE me!! Painting that hutch would have taken me start to finish...three years. You just knock it out-wow! AND it looks incredible! I loved it in the golden yellow but it is beautiful in white. It will look great in Mom's kitchen-I know she must be excited! You are one good daughter!!

  2. Thank you!! You should see that table she's got going for you - I'm picking it up tonight to finish it. You know about it, right? I'm thinking of starting a side business of dead squirrel removal after this week. You in? She totally owes me one for that!

  3. I absolutely love the cabinet - you have made it such a unique piece - you can turn any piece of furniture into a shining star! I can't wait to get it in my kitchen.
