busy bee & hutch makeover

Hi ladies, I hope you are all doing really well!  I have been one busy bee lately. With the onset of spring (my favourite, favourite, season) sunny mornings and a warmth in the air I feel truly revitalised and ready to go!

So lately......... I have been maintaining this...


planting out this...


                                                   building this ...  with hubby ofcourse!

making over this...


and revamping this... I purchased this quite a while ago from a garage sale and yesterday was the day it got it's makeover! Yes it's done.. have a look.. This is the before.. first gave it a light sand..


Now primed ...


painting done.. yeah! Now to distress and decorate..


Here she is!





I had so much fun with this painting it green. I love white but thought I'd have a change! I love a green piece of furniture in a room. Soon I will show you the room this beauty now graces! I am so happy with how it turned out.. take care,  Maryann

Well done, your cabinet looks beautiful and your garden is very pretty. I've been spending quite a bit of time out there too, enjoying how everything is starting to grow and flower.
I have that exact card you have sitting on the top shelf!
