Sharing some pics of my hutch today! Most of you know I've been slowly trying to re-decorate my house to lighten things up a bit. Changing out blacks and reds for more whites, yellows and blues. I'm on a roll! Dropping one red rooster at a time! Die roosters! ;) My hutch has been hard for me because it has long, wide shelves that can look cluttered in a hurry if I'm not careful. (Clutter and I don't care much for one another.) I can't stop tweaking this hutch! Every time I walk by I quickly add something else, move something over. It will most likely change by this afternoon, but I thought I'd share what I have so far - the way it looks at the moment. :)
Here's what it used to look like --
(my little boyfriend snoozing in his swing makes for a pretty cute accessory)
I've been having a love affair with white pitchers for years now and have been collecting them for our next house. But since finding our next house isn't happening as quickly as I'd like it to, I decided to display some of them now. The bead board on the back of the hutch is a light white wash that I love, but looks best with pops of bright color against it so I added some fun blue dishes and vases.
Here's a closer look.
Like I said, it's still a work in progress. I'd eventually like to find something for the top of it and maybe the base. I keep trying things that I already have around the house like my black wire baskets but I don't like anything yet. I'm sensing an excuse to go shopping! (Look at those baskets Kenny - not right. It's clearly imperative that I must immediately head to Pottery Barn to correct this tragedy. I know once you see this picture you'll agree 100%.)
Close ups of the decor -
(often used to hold flowers) and most of the other decor is from Home Goods and TJ Maxx.
The little pumpkins I picked up at Michaels and I'm loving the pop of orange for Fall.
So there you go! Another space in my house that is on its way to becoming a little brighter, a little more current, and a little more me. :)
