An “Old” Farm Hutch with downloadable tutorial


I mentioned in my last post that I “gave” myself a Craigslist redo for Mother’s Day. I started and finished this hutch on Saturday so that we could enjoy it on Mother’s Day with our family here. This project was really fun for me.  I took a lot of pictures of the process and put together a downloadable step-by-step how-to (details at the end).

I had originally painted this CL bed for her, thinking it would work well for her room, but the foot board recently broke off. Rather than finding a quality solution for repairing it, we decided to get her something less bulky. In general, the bed was out of scale for her room. Here is what it was before it was broken: READ THE REST //

Cottage Gray Chest of Drawers

I forgot how much I enjoy the process of repairing and painting furniture to be enjoyed again for years to come. READ THE REST //
