A Redone Hutch

So today I finally decided to break down and redecorate my hutch and clean all the clutter off of it. Unfortunately, it's bad about becoming a catch all. This hutch was bought at a garage sale for $60 - a little more than I like to pay for anything but it was DH's cousins garage sale and I don't haggle with her much since she's family. Lucky for me, it was already painted white so I didn't have to do anything to it.

Before - told you it was a mess



After - one of these days when we redo our kitchen cabinets all my cookbooks are going over there but in the meantime they live here.

Just beautiful. I'm on the look out for a white hutch also...I LOVE all your treasures. They make my heart glad when I see the pictures...Your house is filled with love in every corner !!

It's amazing what a little "neatening" can accomplish. You've inspired me to tidy up a few catch-alls! The hutch looks great. I also read your garage sale and GW finds in the previous posts! You got some great deals ... congrats!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving the nice comments. Interesting that someone in your family buys contents of storage units and sells them at yard sales. I've heard some contain hidden treasures (in the boxes and bags) that do well on eBay. Have a wonderful week!

Bye for now,
Bill

Looking good...isn't it fun to re-do!!! Just a little "tweaking" and one feels so much better.
Read your past post and saw all your tresures...
sorry about your toe...
I ran into a rock and my baby toe has been hurting for 3 weeks...good thing I don't need to wear shoes...
Happy Thrifting!

Thanks for stopping by my neck of the woods. I really like your hutch and think it is a great deal for $60!

And I hate creepy people at rummage sales...do not try and talk me into buying your stuff. I'm here for what I want, not to be pressured! I'll ask if I want you to follow me around :)
