So, I kept an eye out and pretty much stalked every posting on CL. THEN I found it. This is what I got...(two weeks after I had our second baby)...HA!
Here's how it looked when I got it in the house. I didn't know how to decorate it, and frankly, it just wasn't a huge priority. Sleep was. If you've had a baby, you can totally relate.
kitchen island again. Something I TOTALLY would do too! HA!! I LOVED the color she chose:
Sherwin Williams: Jubilee (SW6248)
So after I took my kids in to the pediatrician for wellness checks (4-months and 3 years old), we headed over to Sherwin Williams. I got a 'quart to go' -- which only comes in a satin finish, for $6 plus tax. And I got the whole hutch painted with leftover paint. Here's how it turned out:
Now, I'm sure ya'll may want to know about everything in the picture, so I'll break it down for you.
Hutch: $150 -- found on Craigslist.
Plates: $1 each -- bought at The Dollar Store. I bought 8 square plates and 8 salad plates to give it the layered look.
Apples & Pears: Pier 1 on clearance. Click here for the link right to them. Then, I spray painted them Oil Rubbed Bronze.
Sign on top of hutch: I made it. The inspiration came from here (something I found on Pinterest). Here's a screen shot since I can't find it on the blog anymore...
tutorial on what to buy and how to make them.
