I have a vintage hutch in my kitchen that I found at a yard sale in
Houston before I got married. It was in sad shape when I got it. I
painted it a country blue and lined the shelves with a Laura Ashley
print. It was the style of the time.
As I recall, part of the reason I lined the shelves with fabric is because there
was some kind of stain that was on the shelves that refused to accept paint.
This little hutch went from Houston to Middleburg, Virginia and then
finally to Idaho where it has lived ever since in my kitchen.
But times change and I felt that it needed some updating, so it's been
painted with some of my homemade chalk paint and I have stripped
the fabric off the shelves.
So here it is now freshly painted. It still stores many things I love though,
and that will probably never change.
Bits and pieces collected and loved throughout the years.
My mother-in-law sent me this adorable little girl and she lives on the
Beatrix Potter shelf.
I am still painting the kitchen cabinets and making an under
the sink skirt. I will show you pics as I progress.

napping now because he is exhausted. Now those poor squirrels
are getting some much needed relief!
