starting a facelift {the hutch}

So a different kind of post today. Most of my house is full of projects that could be cute but just need a little TLC. I'm going to attempt one and document my process. This is a stretch for me 1) I hate showing ugly photos and 2) now I'm actually accountable to finish the project—which happens to be the kitchen hutch. 

Now don't let the photos decieve you, this guy is not in good shape. All the doors are bowed out, the paint job was awful and must be 10 coats, and on the right you can see the glass has paint around all it's edges.

To start the project we NEED a little inspiration to get moving, and to let you in on the vision.

I'm worried this will be 4x the amount of work I'd like to spend on it. So you must have patience. The goal is the end of the month, but I have some traveling to schedule around....And I think that's my last disclaimer for this blog post. Now time to let the magic happen!

hahaha! this post made me laugh! I just wrote about the various patches of sample paints I have painted on my wall to spur me into action. To finally decide on a paint. Finally PAINT the darn walls! Accountability. Now that all my friends and family know about it (plus the fact that living with multiple squares of various paints will drive me BONKERS) I have to follow through and finish the project.

I think it will turn out great! I turned an old suitcase into and end table. I thought it was going to be harder than it actually was. All I had to do was screw in a few metal furniture legs in the bottom of the suitcase. It gives the room an antique feeling. I hope you post pictures of the after!
