For a very long time I have been on the hunt for a corner hutch to place in my dinning room. Countless times I've been on the verge of trying to build my own. Last week at the thrift store all my waiting was rewarded when I found one for under twenty dollars.
(Insert squealing, happy dances, maybe even some fainting)
To say the least, I was thrilled.
Once I hauled it home I realized it wasn't going to fit where I wanted it to go. Bummer right . . . excitement meter when down a peg or two for sure . . .Time for Plan "B". . . determined to make it work somewhere in my house I decided the best things to do was get it painted and hope inspiration would come to me.
Today it's looking like this . . .
Last Saturday it was looking more like this. . .
It fits perfectly into the corner of my living room and I'm thinking it looks fabulous and oh so perfect for the spot.
My excitement is back up in high gear.
I had a blast arranging and rearranging some of my favorite things to display.
I can already tell this hutch and I are going to have some fun times.
Yep, no denying it... I'm in love.
I decided to keep the original hardware just the way I found them. I'm liking the dark finish it has (in person they don't look so "brassy")
A light distressing along the edges and in a few random spots helped give the hutch a little more detail.
Amazingly, the hutch has increased the cozy feeling in the living room and I couldn't be more pleased.
