The Hutch

Hello friends,
While I was painting the cabinet I also painted the inside of the hutch. I think all my white platters, and pitchers look better with a pop of color. I used the same color as the cabinet. Chateau grey chalk paint.I think all the white stands out now! While I was at It I changed things around a little.

I tried to keep It simple. I just used a few of my favorite things. 

I bought this carrier several years ago at an estate sale. It's so long that I have a hard time finding a place for It. The Inside has a metal border all the way around.

I think I found the right place for It now!! Everytime michaels has a sale I buy more hydrangeas. They could be expensive at the regular price.

I'm using my old molds as candle holders.The votives fit just right. 

I bought this old jar at a yard sale about a month ago. I love the galvanized lid. Great place to store my twine.

Have a great day!!

Your hutch looks great, Kathy! I just bought some hydrangeas from Michaels, too. I definitely know how expensive they can be, especially for a single flower! I wound up getting the bunches they had on sale.

Kathy, your hutch looks GREAT! I want to order some of the Chateau Grey chalk paint. It has a green tone to it doesn't it? I love your carrier and placing the hydrangeas in it was the finishing touch. Enjoy your day, Gail

Hi Kathy! Oh, your hutch looks wonderful. The darker color on the back really does help your pretty white dishes show up better. Love your long wooden thingy holding all of the hydrangeas! :) So pretty.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Kathy, you are so creative with decor. I love your hydrangeas and just may have to copycat you on that!

Kathy, I left a comment on this post yesterday afternoon, but I've just realized that I wasn't logged into my account when I left it. I don't know if you got it or not.

I just wanted to say that I appreciate how hard you work to make every post beautiful and well-written. I think you show tremendous respect for your reader, and I think that is absolutely wonderful. Just wanted to say thanks for that!

I also think your hutch looks awesome!

Ahhhhh! It looks so cute. I love the long tray thingy with the hydrangeas on top. Just precious... you are so good with the whole symmetry thing, and that really appeals to me, it's all just such a soft pretty symmetry...
