Hutch Redo

Remember from this hutch from a previous post I bought from on the local classified ads?  I knew it was destined to be a creamy white. I finally finished it before Christmas.  I painted it right in my dining room.  It was too cold in the garage. It sat primed and partially painted during my Thanksgiving Dinner. I guess my mom didn't care that much......

This is how it turned out. Much fresher don't you think?

I bought it mainly for the storage. I haven't even filled it all up yet!
Which for me is a miracle.

Have a great weekend!

Falling In Love Again...

Remember this cabinet I bought a few years ago on
our local classifieds?

For some reason I wasn't feeling the love. Besides,
 I had bought another hutch for my dining room
where I had this one. I even listed it in the classifieds before the holidays but didn't sell it. 
I moved it in my living room
and decided to revamp it a little.

I lined the back of it with heavy Italian Wrapping Paper. 
I think it looks alot better. I repurposed it with
more of a "library" feel to it.

I fell it love with it all over again! So glad I didn't get rid of it.....Does that ever happen to you?

Now that Halloween is over, I have changed some vignettes over to Autumn.

I just realized this little birdie is facing away from the camera.....those little decorators in my home

Here is my sideboard. The autumn watercolor print is from the thrift store. The
Transferware china is from the classifieds

Shabby Dresser Sneak Peek

I bought a French Provincial Dresser on KSL Classifieds to paint and put in my daughters room.

Here is my little helper with ther primer

Once I get the whole thing done in a creamy white and then waxed I
will take some stunning "after photos"

Happy Halloween

I got the stack of Stratfordshire Plates at a yard sale this summer and the white ironstone bowl
at a yard sale last summer

 Here are a few shots of my spooky front porch

Have a great Halloween week! Have you gotten your candy
yet and hidden it from yourself?
