About a week before Lucketts this year, I picked up a beautiful primitive hutch off Craig’s List. The lovely lady I bought it from was moving and needed to sell it. It seemed meant to be. I got a good price for it and she gets to pay virtual visits to the hutch whenever she wants! (She is a MMS blog reader, coincidentally) The hutch was beautiful, but the blue was a touch too bright for me, so I carefully painted it. (You can read about the process HERE.)
I haven’t done a full photo shoot with it, yet, but I snapped some pictures of it and couldn’t help but share them…
I’m very pleased with how I was able to paint it without losing the character in the finish. It really is a special piece and I’m totally in love with it.
…and can’t you tell I’m enjoying my new hydrangea bush?
One last thing… I shared about Barn & Willow, the maker of the beautiful Belgian linen curtains in my family room, a week or so ago. Well, they are now offering an exclusive coupon code for MMS readers. Just enter MMSJULY4TH to get a 15% discount now through July 31, 2014. Curtains like these are a big investment, so this is a way to get them for a little less.
