In Love - New Hutch

So, I have finally finished up my hutch project and couldn't be happier with the final result.  I ended up putting it in my foyer and I love it!!!

Here is the piece husband bought it for me as an early birthday gift, after I found it at one of our local antique/thrift stores.  It was marked down from $180 to $90, and it is a solid piece from the 1930s. 

The paint job was terrible - big globs of paint and wood showing through in some areas.  It was a minty green color.  I sanded it (forevah!), then painted it with 2 coats of Behr Paint and Primer in One in Bird's Egg (which is a Benjamin Moore color).   I spray painted the hardware with Rustoleum Satin Nickel, and here is the after...

I drilled a small hole in the back (and yes, I plan on covering it with some type of dish so it doesn't stand out) so I could have a lamp inside and accessorized with my milk glass and pewter dishes. Close-up shots...

And some pictures at night...some are blurry, sorry...

Thanks for stopping by! Stay tuned for my playroom makeover, that my mom and I recently worked on, and some new additions to my son's big boy room!

Our Dining Rooms

Today on Kelly's Korner Show Us Your Life, the topic is Dining Rooms.  Since we have moved in I have really tried to fill in this space and put in some color.   Here it is...
