hutch inspiration....

In a previous post I mentioned I was working on making over a buffet and hutch. I did paint the bottom section but came to a halt because I wanted to back the hutch section with wall paper. Since there are no great wall paper shops where I live and the ones at the hardware stores are very limited I decided to look online and found a website where I could get some samples which I am waiting on as we speak. There were quite a few that I liked and couldn't decide which is so typically me. So in the meantime here are some inspiration photos I found on pinterest...

This one is painted a different colour has the same effect.

I hope my project will turn out as nice as these!
take care, Maryann

A couple of little make overs..

I thought I would show you all a couple of small make overs I did just recently. One of a gorgeous brass cherub bowl and the other of a candelabra.

I did them both with Annie Sloan chalk paint and am very happy with the results.

I'm also in the process of purging and trying to declutter some of my stuff with a bit of rearranging as well in an effort to make life easier once I open my store but it's proving harder than anticipated!
 take care ladies,

Buffet & Hutch make over in progress....

At the moment I am working on making over this lovely buffet & hutch that I picked up not long ago. I absolutely loved the details on the drawers so it came home with me. I am also using using Annie Sloan's chalk paint for the first time and I am happy with the result and the creamy texture of the paint it leaves. I did water it down just a little though as it is very thick.

I still need to wax it and paint the hutch section but I'm thinking of wall paper for the back of the hutch since it's such a large expanse and very plain. Something very subtle and neutral perhaps with a fine design or pattern.

So once it's all done I'll post some more pics.  I am also doing the happy dance at the moment as I finally get the keys to my store today. So I will be very busy getting all that ready as well and hopefully won't be long before I can open my doors.
