Hutch Transformation Pt. 1

I really am going to paint my hutch.  Really I am.  This weekend I have been getting ready for my high school reunion and my 14th wedding anniversary is Monday so we went to dinner Friday night.  Want to hear something funny?  We bought each other the same exact card.  My husband has to work on Monday (24 hour shift) so we did our card exchange at dinner.   Anyway,with the reunion next weekend and a mountain trip the following weekend, the hutch will have to wait.   However, I did decide to play around with redecorating it.  See what you think.  It will be interesting to see how different it will look after I paint it.

Here is the before pic.


And the after.



I tried to make everything more cohesive.  I may still make some changes especially once the hutch is redone.  Feel free to make any suggestions with the decor.  I appreciate other’s ideas. 

I painted a basket I got from a garage sale that looked like this.  (I had to borrow a photo from ebay because I forgot to take a before.)

I painted it black and added some hydrangeas.



I painted another basket to add to the left side and filled it with artificial artichokes.


My father in law made the pig cutting board when he was in school.  He is now 80. 


I borrowed some plates from my tall black cabinet.  It doesn’t seem too bare even after taking almost half of the plates.




This copper pot was my mom’s and the pewter goblets were given to me by my father in law and his wife.



This was also my mom’s.  Have you ever noticed the detail on these?
