The hutch is finally completed. I do wish I had taken a before picture but the hutch has been in limbo and in various forms of disarray since the beginning of the kitchen remodel in July.
Below is the hutch and our old dining set. I did love the table but the pedestal was broken and worn. It was my mother's table before me. The hutch was also my mother's. Here is the before, if you click on the picture you will have a better look at how outdated it was. The hardware was old and none of the hinges worked. When you opened the doors the springs would pop out.
It looks like a new piece.
I distressed it and added some antiquing glaze.
The trim and decorative elements seem to stand out more with the white.
Here is the completed hutch and dining set~from the living room side.
From the kitchen
There have been a few more changes. The living room side has been rearranged, I just finished it a few minutes ago. It is not spring yet but I can't help feeling like it is. I want to give everything new life. Working on a few projects that I can't wait to share.
In other news, our seventeen yo daughter has her first official job. With the poor economy it has been difficult for her to find work. Many places now require that you are 18 before you can fill out an application. This week she had her first interview and Monday she will be joining the work force. This job came to her by way of my brother. He works there and send the work along that they were looking for a part time receptionist. She is thrilled. I am excited for her but it is also sad to see her grow up so quickly.
