Before and After Hutch/China Cupboard
Hope you had a nice weekend. Last Monday we had a record high, and this morning we have light rain, and cool temps. Yay for Fall!!
Last Sunday I was walking at the Ventura Flea Market, and I stopped in my tracks when I saw this beautiful French hutch. My first reaction was it's probably already sold, as sometimes things are.
I asked the lady if it was still for sale and much to my surprise it was.
It took some convincing my husband that I really wanted it, and even though it was a pain to get into my suv, I really wanted to get it.
We talked about how I was so tired of the one we had, and this one would go way better with my new farm table etc, etc. The old one is not an antique, and was a hand me down, that I painted. It served it's purpose for a very long time. So the white one is the before, and the wood one is the after.
I had so much cleaning out to do to get my things arranged in the new one, but again worth it. The old one has a new home at my daughter's house, her hutch was smaller, and this one will give her more storage room.
By the way, the pretty pumpkin came from my trip to Nipomo and the Remnants of the Past show this past Saturday. If you want to see pictures, google Remnants of the Past in Nipomo. It was so crowded and busy, that I did not take any photos this time.
Well, I'm off to go make some chicken wire crowns, and admire my new hutch.
Have a great week.
PS, what does it mean when you lose some followers?? Does it mean you don't post enough, or visit enough, or you are boring? Not sure, but I have lost a few lately.
So sorry, but I have been extremely busy with tons of orders, which is great! It doesn't leave me a lot of extra time to visit and leave comments, but I try. I really enjoy all of the blogs out there, and who doesn't love leaving a comment?
It's fun!! Anyway I apologize to those people who don't understand that making art takes ups a lot of time, and I am super detailed with what I make.
I will try to post and visit more often in the future.
OK, rant over!!
