My man and I have been vigorously sanding (mostly him) and painting (mostly me) various things around the apartment: old end tables, little bookshelves, picture frames and the like. As a result, the place has been a total disaster to navigate, so it was a huge relief when we were finally able to put Humpty Dumpty back together again, new and improved, once the paint was dry.
Right. Except we've decided to tear it all up again to finish a few more projects before the weather permanently sours.
Anyway, I wanted to show you my favorite finished project thus far (is anything ever really finished?):
Our shiny 'new' kitchen hutch! New to us, anyway.
I have to say, it was in a bit of a sorry state when Matt first found it, but its potential was obvious, even through this blurry phone image...
After four coats of paint and updated hardware, we are very pleased with the results. Although... I'm thinking that after this whole painting excursion is over, I might see how it takes to some of my 'papering.'
Also, now that I'm looking, I think it might be time to re-stain the shelving unit and our kitchen table gray...
