I'm sure that I'm not the only for whom this is true but sometimes in my most overwhelming times and deadlines, I really, really need to do something else for a break. It makes everything else go faster, easier and better, it seems. So last weekend I decided I was finally going to give my very old and outdated hutch a little updo. The top of the hutch was oak and the original bottom was something I gave to a friend since I wanted something bigger with more presence and storage space. This bottom was a white piece that I had found at the flea market this summer. It had been sitting in my dining room since then, taking up space!
A little dark grey chalk paint for most of the hutch and some creamy white for the interior and we were done.
I can't even tell you how happy the end result is making me.
If I'm not doing what I am supposed to be at any given time… well, you might just find me with a cup of tea at my dining room admiring my "new" hutch.
I know, I know, I am easily pleased.
… my favorite new Weck Jars. Now if I just had the time to can something that would be even better!
… love that little touch of light green these days. Doesn't it look wonderful with the orange and bright yellow?
If there is a random little project that you have been wanting to do but haven't had the time… well, go for it. I think it will make you feel so accomplished!
