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 So last weekend I decided I was finally going to give my very old and outdated hutch a little updo.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!
