A Pop of Color for Summer
This pine hutch was a popular craft show and country craftsman furniture item from the 90's...let me remind you-the really, really dark stained pine pieces :) Bobby built similar things then, but he found this one at a local thrift store in all it's glory-missing a door. The piece is quite the storage cabinet (standing at over 5 feet tall and about 4 feet wide)-with all the drawers and shelves...and, how cute would a basket be in the open bin. A great distressed sunflower yellow with a brown glaze added lots of cheer and personality to this dark hutch. Bobby re-used the original knobs and handles, although they could be easily updated as well. Perfect in a kitchen or breakfast room...or brighten your daily routine by placing this piece in the mudroom for extra storage and an organization area as a drop off for mail, pet treats and leashes, schoolbooks...and all your everyday "stuff".
"Cottage and Cabin" is my collection of designs for your home and garden. I am a designer/seamstress, and I truly do what I love and love what I do. I enjoy all aspects of home decor, especially cottage style furnishings and designing window treatments and nurseries. As much as I love sewing, I also spend lots of time redesigning and painting old furniture and salvage pieces.
