Two days ago Matt and I picked up this farmhouse hutch through a Kijiji sale. It was $80, and offers some useful storage and display space. I shared the photo below on Instagram. This will be a great little character piece in our dining room. The base is kind of huge- and I am guilty of buying before measuring. But I think it will work for us.

I have been looking for something like this for a while, and was pretty happy to find it. It’s quite old, with a lot of layers of paint. It seems like someone rebuilt the wood top and top of the cabinet at some point- they also replaced the knobs. Darn! I have several inspiration photos floating around on pinterest and thought I would share them here today… Maybe you can help me decide on a color?

I definitely want to go neutral- in either a gray or creamy white. It is simply a matter of deciding what shade of gray…. I’m planning to eventually panel the lower portion of our dining room, and paint the upper portion in the same grey owl lightened by 50% that is in our living room.

I am having so much fun working on a few furniture pieces here and there… like the wood box and Oma’s Chair. I am working on a dresser for Fin’s room and it is coming along sweetly.

I can’t believe it’s Thursday already!! The weeks seem to fly by lately. Any plans or projects for you this weekend?
