the hutch

My friend Meredith recently reminded me that I have never "revealed" my thrifted hutch that I painted months and months ago. This is a common problem I have. I sew something, paint something or bake/cook something and plan to blog about it but I just keep forgetting. It gets worse with every year and every pregnancy. Someday I fully expect to forget I even have a blog!

Anyhow, here is the finished hutch:

Here is a reminder of the hutch before:

I was really unsure of what color to paint it. I considered aqua, green or white. I am really happy with the blue I finally decided on. It's Kerry Blue Terrier by Martha Stewart. It goes really well with the dining room curtains which was just luck considering I found the curtain material after I painted the hutch.

I filled the hutch with all my pretty white things. Most of them are thrifted, one gifted, a few from IKEA (the teardrop vases) and a couple from CB2.


This cute bubble bowl is my most recent thrift store find. I love it! $2.

Thanks for helping me remember Mer!

I love the hutch, Erin! Great redo for sure- I love the different shade in the shelf area. It's a great contrast to your white dishes.

Your cabinet turned out great!! I just bought a small polka dot bowl like yours at a thrift store in GA before I left. I love it!

Beautiful! My thrift stores never have furniture with such clean, modern lines. I am jealous!

lovely color and shape! I have that exact cake plate too, on the bottom shelf!

It looks great! But what really puts it over the top is how you've decorated with all of the white dishes. Looks very classy.
