I finally got the hutch done!
I worked and worked on it last,
week in that awful heat! I came in
one morning after working on
it, and it was 97 degrees! Way too
hot for me in the morning,
but I kept at it...We took off the luan
that was on the back and replaced
it with beadboard, I like the look of
it a lot better. Well, here it is, how do
you like it?
A closer view....
Here is the before picture! If you
enlarge the picture you can see that
there are ribbons and flowers painted
on it, but I saw it's potential...I saw
one at an auction earlier this spring
that I liked because it was colonial, but
I had already been there for 5 hours
and it was going to be quite awhile
longer, so we left...Anyway, after 6 trips
to get the paint mixed, I finally got this
one mixed at Ace and it is called
Cherrywood....I can't tell ya what the
color I used on the beadboard, I found
it in the OOPS section, of the paints
in Walmart and they didn't put the name
of the color on the sticker....My next
project is to get the ladder hung up in
the kitchen, under the light....I am not
going to do it, because I was getting some
crock pitchers down from the shelf above
the french doors, and I lost my balance
and I stepped down on a big basket
(that I bought the other day) and then
fell against the shelf full of crocks....Ouch!
I hurt the back of my arm and knocked
my back out of whack, but I didn't break
a pitcher!!! I will leave it to hubby to put
the stuff back on the shelf and to hang the
ladder! I bought some black cup hooks
to put on it to hang things from....I might
even put some pip berries on it, too...
I still have to post the things I got over
the weekend, yet....
I hope you all have a great weekend!
