Liar, Liar.



I am a liar, although an unintentional one.




In my first real blog post, I announced that I had found "The One That Was Staying". Ummm, yeah, not so much. I missed having a tall hutch. However, I think this may be the revolving wall in my kitchen. I have had too many things to count in this spot. Here are some of them.


First there was this...

Then this...

This one was the next, and I thought the last one...

Which leads us here, to my newest love. I think I will keep this one. It fits the awkward little space on the wall. Here is the before. I didn't hate it, and we lived with is like it was for quite a while. But, my husband mentioned a few times that he would like it better in a lighter color. He kind of lets me do my own thing with this furniture-ing, so I thought I would be a nice wife and honor his wishes too!


And here is the after. I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in French Linen and Old White. I love the gray/green/taupe of the French Linen. It is a great color. And Old White is pretty much my go to color. If it were up to me, the world would be painted Old White.




And this little dish thing I love, it was a dollar at a thrift store. I can't bring myself to clean it.



Is it funny that I like every one of them? How could I possibly choose? That would be like asking me which of my children is my favorite. I love them all.

  2. Well, I can understand why you've had a revolving wall...all of those pieces are beautiful! Never mind, I think all of us shabby-style girls are the same :) If you ever feel like shipping one of your gorgeous, unwanted pieces to me here in Australia feel free :) I'm a new follower too.

  13. Oh this is so gorgeous!!! You did a fantastique job on this. I play the game of revolving furniture around here too. I think anyone with a talent and eye for quality pieces does this. There are just too many beautiful things to do with paint! Keep this one for a while though!!! Thank you so much for sharing. -K

  17. I do love a good hutch but if you sell that buffet to ANYONE other than me, I will haunt you and tell you what a mistake you made! With love, of course!

  22. Hi Chrystal! I just want to say how great your hutch turned out. Love it. I just finished one almost identical to yours (yours is a little larger). I did mine in a beachy type. Please check it out if you get the chance!
    Thanks....Beth Makemeprettyagain.blogspot.com

    1. Grab a paintbrush and paint along! Painting is cheaper than therapy!
