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?
