Hi friends - I hope you are all doing well!
This is the type of post I get excited about. Not because it's authentic and revolutionary, but because I don't often work on refinishing furniture and I feel a little closer to becoming a 'real DIY blogger'.
A couple of months ago I saw this sad little hutch at our local thrift store. I inspected it and soon saw right into its soul. Its sad looking scratched up surface hiding beauty. But despite its already low price, it had an additional 50% off tag adorning it, trying to tell the world 'I really want to go home with you', yet I still walked away.
We left the store with more items than intended, but I still couldn't get this little hutch off my mind. So I asked my sweet hubby if he could go back and get it for me? Once at the store he called me.
hubby: ' babe, what does this hutch look like?'
me: 'it's brown and it has glass doors and....etc'
hubby: 'I'm looking at it right now, but are you sure you want this? It's kinda...'
me: 'don't worry, I can make it beautiful'
So, hubby comes home with the little hutch that could and a couple of weeks later....
It holds some of the pretties I have been collecting.
Remember the burlap place mat?
Some beautiful serving dishes my sweet mother-in-law
has given us look perfect holding some old silver cutlery...
I never get tired of the beauty of the blue
jars. This one I found recently for $1.99.
And here he is again...
A lot of the items are simple dishes that I have either
collected from thrift stores or had in my kitchen pantry.
I love the little 'pop' of colour from
The PoP Shoppe bottle (also seen here)
New knobs, and a little distressing on the doors and edges...
I didn't want too much for this piece...
And there you go...the little hutch that could. I'm sure this little hutch will become a focal point in our home and will change with the seasons...
I hope I didn't bore you with too many pictures; I guess I'm a proud momma...:)
As usual, thank you for calling today. I hope to see you very soon.
Remember to come back as I will announce the winner of the hand painted tote as well as I will be sharing with you a very important and dear to my heart event I will be attending.
sending you much love,
