The Hutch Re-Do

Remember the hutch? Here it is before the milk paint incident.

This picture makes it look like a warm, rosy wood color. Don’t be fooled–it looked like poo. Not to mention that it had been chewed on in various spots by a dog or critter of unknown origin. But, it was solid and just needed a make-over to make it beautiful for the first time again.

The RESULT! I just love it! Here it is tricked out as Homeschool Central. It makes my heart happy to lovely books lined up in rows.

Lemony helped style the table. I think the owl adds a certain…uh…je ne sais quoi.  (I had the word “pas” here. Just found out that means why, not what. I thought it looked weird. LOL)

Even the left-out/left-over doors were put to good use, thanks to a great suggestion from my new friend at Simplified by Bobbie. Now I’m just waiting for some chalk pens to arrive a la Amazon!
