And Yet Another Hutch, Before and After!

Who doesn’t like a good before and after project? I know I do!

Some of you might have already seen it on my Homesteader’s FB page but this is for all of you who don’t do FB.

Most of you already know that I have a hutch fetish and most of them quickly got a fresh new look with a fresh coat of paint soon after we purchased them off Craigslist. But this last one stayed the same for a few years because it actually went with my “theme” in my other home. BUT since we moved and I’m going in a different direction “theme” wise, it had to be painted. AND because my husband is the best of the best, AND because I don’t have a lot of time on my hands, (not that he does either) he did all the work himself. Oh who am I kidding? I wanted him to do it. I told him so, I didn’t want to do it. I wanted it to look nice and for some reason I can’t do nice, I drip and streak and it ends up looking shabby even when I don’t want it to. So there you have it, the truth! Phew, I feel better getting that off my chest.

So without further ado, the hutch.

Doesn’t it just scream bright and happy now? I just love looking at it.

Thank you my Honey Bunches for doing this for me.

Do you have any paint projects going?

Have a LOVELY day my friends!
