I hope your weekend was as wonderful as ever!!! We took Oliver to a petting zoo & on his first train ride, shopped for supplies & came up with a plan for the future outdoor table, & also managed to fit in another project I have been wanting to do for a while now.
As you know, this is how our dining room hutch looked in the Baltimore casa....
But originally it was very red & very dark (however, still a lovely piece of furniture) We painted it Chinchilla Grey by Martha Stewart & replaced the hardware, but lately I have felt like that wasn't enough.
In our new California digs it acts as more of an entry piece rather than a dining room hutch. Instead of collecting bowls & cake plates, it houses our car keys, books, & trinkets on display. And ever since I saw these lil' beauties on Pinterest...

I have been wanting (once again) to take our magnificent hutch to a new level. So this weekend we started the process. It is taking a few steps so please bare with me. Tomorrow I will be showing steps 1 & 2...I hope you will check back to see the progress ;.)
