Dining Room Hutch

      For about three months I searched and searched for a dining room hutch. The style I wanted was antiqued with a bold color. I looked in every catalog, antique store, online stores, absolutely  EVERYWHERE. I was never satisfied. Finally one of my friends convinced me that I would be able to re-do my own hutch, and make it exactly how I wanted it. I am so thankful that she convinced me to, because I did! I went to a local flea mall, and purchased a hutch that was two pieces, cabinets at the bottom, and a glass hutch at the top. It was in perfect condition,per say, minus the distracting retro vibe it gave, but I was about to fix that!

Final Result:


Here are some before & After pics...

     This project was so much fun! It was also very affordable. I spent one hundred dollars on the hutch from the flea market, and about ten dollars on paint. I had all of the paint brushes, so in the end it was only a little over one hundred dollars. Amazing!



     My dining room certainly isn't complete, there are bare walls and plenty of space for more projects, but it's getting there! I love my dining room so far. One of the first projects coming up is switching out the light above the table. The light is not my style at all, but it is one that came standard when the builders built our house. I will keep you all updated on the progress of my dining room, and other projects going on in our house!!

A few more pictures of the hutch...

I love this cute sign that was given to me, and of course the chubby bird.
I replaced the knob with a lovely little glass knob.

The top of the hutch has some great detail

I absolutely love this antique wine jug that was given to me

I love this jute rug so much..
I got these dishes from Pier 1... and the bird art was given to me by a very good friend.

This was such a fun project, and I can't wait to start on my next furniture project. I will keep you all updated on the many house projects to come!!
Love always,
