I recently took on a big project. Well, big for me! I don't usually redo pieces of furniture! But I was inspired by a blog I just started following and thought, "I can change this!"
So...here's how we began:
My Aunt Sara offered us this hutch several years ago. She brought it down to us just this summer (it's hard to make time to do the drive with the truck to haul furniture!!). It's pretty, especially with the light from the camera flash, but it looks really dark in our home, and I wasn't crazy about it. So...I took the doors off and painted it...
and added pretty scrapbook paper to the back of each shelf.
I'm excited! I think we may put it in the kitchen so it can stand against the red wall and POP! Plus, the curtains in there are the black and cream toille pattern like the paper on the shelves. Hooray!
And just for fun, a picture of me and Elijah this weekend:
