If you follow along on Facebook or Instagram, you know I've been painting this week - along with my clothes, hands, knees, and feet, this hutch got a fresh makeover!
I found this "adobe" coral colored hutch at a second hand shop a few weeks ago. It had belonged to one of the volunteer's mother and she said it was in their house when she was growing up. They had done some minor repairs to it and painted it adobe, but decided they just didn't have room for it anymore. I debated about getting it and always say "where am I going to store more furniture?" But as a contemplated it, I got visions of turquoise and brown being layered over the coral and I quickly paid them and loaded it in my truck!
Fast forward a couple weeks and I brought that vision to life! This week has been relatively mild for June in Texas (mostly in the 80's without the extreme humidity) so I decided it was time to get outside and paint.
Like I said. I painted more than the hutch and judging by my inquiry on Instagram, I'm not the only messy painter among my friends!
I bought the Mikasa Sunny Side dishes several years ago, although I don't think we ever used them. I thought they were so pretty, but we have our ever day dishes that we use and don't entertain at our home, so I decided they would also go to our booth. There's a 4 piece place setting along with several serving dishes. I believe a total of 26 pieces (when you count a couple lids).
According to the former owners of the hutch - it is solid maple. It is a two piece hutch with the top shelves coming off and is easy to handle (I can move the top by myself, while its best for two people to carry the bottom portion.) It is about 5 foot tall, so its not a real large cabinet.
