Springtime Hutch

While I was pulling items together for my springtime hutch I didn't have much of a theme or an idea really of what I wanted to do.
I did know that I wanted the space to have a bright, open feeling to it. 
With that in mind, I tried to keep things to a minimum, making sure to add only items I wanted to highlight and to keep the "fluff" at bay.

On the top of the hutch I reused many items you may remember from past posts. 
The beadboard star I made ages ago, and the sign from a couple years back.
I'm sure I've used the white birdhouse in the past at some point also but the blue and white birdhouse is a newly painted one from Micheal's.

The right side of the hutch was filled with mostly white items with pops of blue and green.

This little bunny made the cut.  Look how adorable he is - He's a fav.

So did the boxwood wreath I made last year.  It's the perfect shade of spring-like green don't you think.

The other side of the hutch received more white items and a hint of blue.
I forgot to take a photo of the glass jars up close but I love the simplicity of it.  
 I swear I should use this idea somewhere else in the house since I enjoy it so much.

Another burlap photo mat and a recently purchased plate with pretty blue flowers fills the last shelf.

All in all, I'm very happy with how the hutch turned out.  It seems I don't always have to have a plan to put together a pretty look!  But Man!  It sure is nerve wracking when your in the thick of it.  LOL.
Today I finally finished up my living room spring makeover and I can't wait to show you.  Just waiting on some sunshine to take photos.  Technically the hutch is in the living room but for some reason I always think of it as it's own space - weird huh!
Have a great day everyone and I'll talk to you soon,
