Red Painted Hutch with Birds

It all started on the 84 mile yard sale. My last stop was in Leiper's Fork. I had remembered stopping at Serenite Mason before and seeing such wonderful papers! I knew I had to go buy some as I passed through.

It was the sweetest bird/postage stamp/french paper I had ever seen! I loved it! This became my inspiration for my new hutch.



Well new isn't the correct word! It looked like this when I got it.



It needed some work but lucky for me that's what I like to do! See those doors? Remember them!
I painted this hutch red. I know I have done a painted red hutch before but that one is mine. Although it will be hard to part with this one, it is going to The Three French Hens for our Christmas Open House on Nov 5th! So if you like it come on down and see what else we got or better yet you can purchase this one!

I did something different with this one. I put it in the bathroom. WHAT?
Yes I love it in there because of all the storage.




You can put all your lotions and potions on the shelves.




All your handmade soaps and bath crystals



The fun for me came with those doors. Always striving to do something different then what I have seen, I began to mod podge the beautiful paper I bought to the front of the doors!



I am in LOVE!!!
Then I antiqued the paper so it wouldn't look so new by staining it around the outside and some in the middle.


Isn't this paper to die for? I am so glad I remembered it! It totally transformed this piece.
And then.......I added some hand painted knobs to the the drawers and doors.

LOVE AGAIN!!!



Great Knobs+beautiful paper+vintage hutch=LOVE









 This one is my favorite to date. What do you think?

Bye for now!

Wow, the red looks fantastic with the bird paper! I hit up the 84 mike yard sale too and found some good stuff despite not making it til later in the day!

Wish I could come to the open house! I still haven't been by to see your new spot at three French hens! I'd come if I wasn't going to be in Mt. Juliet all day selling my signs at a craft fair! I'll have to come soon because it literally bothers me when I haven't been by in awhile t

Would that I had a bath large enough....I might just find myself in Tennessee "as the crow flies!" Gorgeous Deneen....Is it displayed in your bath? If so, I don't know how you can stand to part with it!!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
