I'm participating in the Met Monday, hosted by Between Naps On The Porch . Go visit Susan's blog to see links to many more creative blogs!
Here is a $45 Craigslist hutch that I knew would give me much needed storage space. However, that 70's wood look had to go! But it's got good lines and is solid wood - that's why I love vintage furniture.
And now.....look at my freshly-painted hutch! You can see the good lines now. And it feels so clean and ready for my kitchen goods.
I also put up a neighboring baker's rack to hold baskets and boxes - what I have now is a "junk drawer" and THAT will soon be eliminated. The baskets will hold useful items, like scissors, rulers, note paper, clothes pins, etc.
It seems everyone in blog town has been putting numbers on baskets, boxes, trunks, stairs, etc. and I want to jump onboard. Here are my humble baskets with their imperfect lettering....but I'm calling the imperfection "charming". (Ha! with that definition, I have a lot of "charming" things around the house!)
A wire fruit bowl does the trick for a cheap and easy Halloween display.
For a little flourish, I added some wood embellishment.
Oops, I should have warned ya to look away! This is hideous and makes me a little queasy.
Ahhhhh, this is more like it. The hardware was painted a gun metal gray that I mixed up with a little black and white hobby paint.
Ta-Da!! I love it. And my pocket book loves it, too!
(Note: I lost 4 comments when I had to re-do this post because I reformatted my blog. Sorry about that....)
Peace at Christmas - This second week in Advent we light the peace candle. This impossible week smack in the middle of the loud to-do lists, the party planning, the loved one...
