Wintertime Hutch

Last week when I showed off the living room's winter decor I completely forgot to include the hutch.

This weekend I hope to start adding a few Valentine items to the hutch so I had better show off a few quick photos before I start changing things out.

I will keep it short and sweet today, my kiddos are home again today with school cancelled for yet another day of frigid weather.  Hopefully, I can get through this post before I'm called away!  LOL.

Like the rest of the living room, I tried to keep the color palette limited to white and black.

I am enjoying the finished look quite a bit.

It's simple and pretty.

Yet a good mixture of textures and shapes to keep it interesting I think.

Favorites like vintage silverware and baby's breath.

And my homemade chicken wire cloche make me smile.

As does the stack of distressed books and the rusty metal cow.

I thought this little pitcher needed a little something extra, so I added a handful of rolled book pages.

And finally, a wire basket filled with my resent score of yarn keeps it handy when I find the time to start a new project. 

Hope you all have a wonderful day,

and stay warm!

  9. Your hutch and all of its wonderful contents are fabulous!!! Don't you just love how the old patinaed metals play off the ironstone? I especially like the cast iron cow (full udder and all) and your home made cloche (I think I need to try this). Have fun with the "kiddo's".
