I'm participating in another Met Monday from Between Naps on the Porch and Trash to Treasure Tuesday over at Reinvented, and Make-over Open House at Sanctuary Arts!
By the way, imagine my utter surprise when I popped over at Reinvented and saw that Kimm (who I LOVE, by the way) was chatting about me in her post today!!!! Me? Little Ol' Me!!! Seriously folks... I'm giddy over this!!!
Anywho...so you know how I L*O*V*E freebies, right? Well, who doesn't?
A few weeks ago, I stopped by my cousin's house. She was emptying her hutch, and mentioned that she was going to put the top of the hutch out for trash because she was going to use the bottom as a sideboard.
Trash? Are you kidding me? Of course I asked her if I could have it! I knew it had potential and I could use it for something!
So, this is how it started. It's upside down in this picture 'cuz hubby was working on it.
I was in the kitchen doing dishes, and I heard him yell into me, "Hey Hon, don't you want to take a before picture of this?"
Is he perfect or what?!!!? He knows me sooo well!
So, hubby removed the bottom part of the 'hutch top' and replaced the feet. He sanded it, and painted it creamy white.
Once the paint was dry, I took the sandpaper and roughed it up in spots to make it look more aged.
I'm not done decorating it yet, and I have my eye on an adorable candle holder at Michaels that will look perfect on it. I have a 40% off coupon that starts tomorrow, so I'll be out there then to pick that bad boy up!
