good bones......

picked up a couple of projects to do....(like i don't have enough already?)

60 dollar china hutch. very nice piece. will paint distressed white or black? that is the question. i love black with the pop of white china. but then again i am getting tired of black myself. just my personal issue as of right now.....:)hubby says white as it easier to change to black if i change my mind......imagine that. hubby is thinking more like me all the time....shhhhhh....don't tell him. also will change the glass inserts to old time bubble glass. i actually like the hardware, but i will be spray painting it to change it to something other than antique brass.

and then this 5 dollar chair and little ethan allen footstool. i see some burlap and paint in the future of the footstool. chair i haven't decided. it will be my first real attempt at reupholstering. i am sure i won't get to this chair until the dead of winter,way after christmas, so i have some time to decide on how to proceed.


  1. Can't wait to see it all finished. The hutch will be beautiful with the new glass in it. I have a chair that I'd like to have upholstered, but I don't think that I could do it my self. My sister wants me to try, but I just can't get up enough to do it. Good luck on yours.

  2. You snagged some good pieces at great prices! Have fun with their transformations.
