I got a new hutch!

We went to the Dysart Back Roads Vintage Market.  I got so many ideas.

Thoughts for all those yard sticks I have in the basement.

I was that mom.  I let Jonathan play in the mud so I could stand in line for Mini Donuts for all of us.

Cute door tree.  I like how the girls model and Jonathan knocks to see if it opens.

Drawers, if it opens and shuts we must test it out!

Dog and cat beds were popular in old drawers and out of old chairs.

Again the doors and drawers that open and close.  That is the hutch I got, a kids hutch.  Mustard Yellow.

I really liked it and she offered it to me for $15.  So here I am with a project.  It is missing half a drawer front, water damage to both sides and the back, the bottom fell off and did I mention that it is mustard yellow?

So I have removed the hardware, sanded the frame and wood puttied where I can.  I removed the part of the flooring that was bad.  

I chose a dark turquoise for the frame and cream for the door and drawer fronts.  I used the can of cream I got on a footstool I also got there so I need to pick up more of that.

I got some small cute knobs from Hobby Lobby both in blue and clear glass.  It depends on how it really gets painted but they had them there for 50% this week so I grabbed them.

Parts for fix:
  • Get new bottom hinges
  • Get a router bit to make the drawer face
  • Make a drawer face
  • Make a bottom piece and install it higher up
  • Putty the new nail holes
Then paint and reassembly!
