Hutch Transformation.

I read some interior design/crafty blogs, and I really wish I had talents to re-do furniture and re-decorate rooms and all of that. Well, now that my work has slowed down I am starting to attempt a few projects to improve our home. The few things I have done so far have turned out ok and I've made lots of mistakes, but I figure I'm learning a lot in the process.

Here is my first go at a big project. I bought this table and hutch at a yard sale for $25 about a year ago. (Remember that Saturday morning run, girls?) I painted it and mod-podged scrapbook paper to it to create new storage for the toys in our playroom.

I didn't have a good "before" photo, but it was black.

I seriously love that the boys can't reach all their toys now; makes it a lot easier to keep things tidy.

Nice job Page! It looks really cute. I keep seeing people doing this to furniture too and I always want to try. I bought my first little table a few weeks ago at a garage sell for $3.. I hope my turns out as cute as yours.

It turned out AWESOME!!!! I'm super impressed, and yes that is a BIG project! Isn't it soooo nice when the kids can't reach all their toys? :) Talk about a world of difference!

This is awesome, Page! I am inspired. This weekend I am going garage sale-ing to see if I can find a fixer upper!
