Kitchen Hutch

I absolutely love my kitchen hutch. It may be my most favorite piece I have. This is not the hutch that I painted green. This is the bigger hutch that was my Grandma's and was brown wood. I had wanted to paint it ever since I got it, but couldn't decide what color. I decided on white and am so glad I did. I also sanded it around the edges to give it a distressed look. I am already looking forward to decking it out for the fall and Christmas. I know y'all can relate to that! Hope y'all are having a great week. My son started Pre-K yesterday so I have had to cope with that...did some worrying and crying, but I am much better today. See ya soon!

Yes, I Am Still Alive!!!

Yes, I am still alive and well! Thank you to all you sweet gals who have checked up on me and I am so sorry I have totally neglected my blog for the past 6 1/2 months. I am not going to make any promises about when my next post will be 'cause I know how I am. But, I have been doing lots of decorating and redoing as always so I should have lots to show you. Here's a quick little project I did recently (well, hubby did) that is hanging in my kitchen. I got my sweety to cut off the back of an old ladderback chair I had and hung it on the wall by a jute string. I have a kitchen towel on it and am looking for something else to add, like a small sign. I need to look through my inspiration file and find something to make. Hope y'all have a great week! Wow, feels kinda good to be back!

Recovered Yard Sale Chair and Placemat Pillow

I have gotten 2 little projects done today - recovered this chair seat and made a pillow for it out of a placemat. The chair, rooster fabric, placemat, and pillow were all bought at yard sales last year. Love projects like this that are cheap and I already have the supplies I need. Hope y'all have a super Saturday!

From Red to Green

Well, I painted my kitchen hutch red and didn't like it at all. I'm sure I could have gone to the store and gotten a better red and it may have turned out o.k., but I decided to go a different route and paint it with some apple green paint I had. I painted and then aged it with some glaze and am really happy with it now. The color looks much better in person than in these pictures. Now comes the fun part - decorating it!

Kitchen Hutch Going Red

Do you ever have an idea pop in your head and don't really even think it through and just start going at it? Well, that's what happened to me about 30 minutes ago. I quickly emptied the drawers of the hutch, took off the hardware, and have been outside in the cold and wind spray painting it red. We'll see if I like it or not...hope I do. But, as we smart bloggers all know, it's just paint!

Polka Dot Runner

I am really trying to get my decorating mojo back. It has taken me a while to get back into decorating after putting up all my Christmas stuff. I love polka dots, especially black and white, so I made (hot glued) this runner for my kitchen table out of some fabric I already had. It makes me smile when I walk in the room. Hope y'all have a great Monday and I WILL be back later this week...promise.
