There once was a hutch on Craigslist for $30.
When my eyes laid upon its ad, I had to have it!
The longer it stayed in my garage the more stuff accumulated on it and then it started to become a permanent fixture in the garage.
Then it came time to move and I thought I would sell it so I spray painted it black put some black and white damask wallpaper in the back, and painted the handles heirloom white. Then put it on Craigslist.
I can't even remember how much I was asking for it any more, but it didn't sell. Not even one inquiry. Which is extremely rare.
I had a bunch of neighbors comment on it, but no bites.
Then we found the new place where we were to lay our heads. I saw a small kitchen and stressed over how much stuff we would be able to stuff into the kitchen and how I would be able to continue my addition to junk drawers.
Did I mention I have a love for junk drawers?
I mean how can you not love a drawer to just throw things into it when it can make your counters look neat and clean?
Then when we drove back to our old house and opened the garage door. I saw my solution right in front of me.
Ding, ding, ding!!
So I took the hutch off of Craigslist and got to keep it for myself!
Here is it in our kitchen.
We also have an "everyday" set that is colorful. But it is in storage right now since we had to be limited in what we brought in.
While this piece was sitting in the garage it somehow got the paint rubbed off. I think I set down a towel that had a little bit of paint remover on it.
And now look my fix!
If I am anything...I am easy. ;)
Fixer that is.
Today little Romeo and I made a treat for our bible study group tonight.
Super easy... huge marshmellows, white chocolate to dip in and then dip them into sprinkles.
But the best part of this hutch is that I get to have not 1...
I know, I know, I know. I need to organize my junk drawers. But then they wouldn't be junk drawers, they would be neat drawers.
So it kind of defeats the purpose then, right?
Anyways, I really like this hutch.
It is supper easy to put our dishes away. It allows me to save my counter space by putting items on it rather then leaving items out on the counter.
We also have room to put the boys cups and plates. The great things is that it is down low, so they can pick their own plates and cups (and take them out of the dishwasher for me and put them away).
I love the detail on the top!
So there it is, my hutch!
What do you think?
