OH, I am a wretched human being.
I LURVE before and after pictures but somehow forgot to take a before picture of my old TV hutch. Let's just say she was a "sweet spirit". Her hinges sagged, her doors barely hung, the backing was gone and all her pieces were MIA.
But I love hutches (as do all our sisters) and still knew she could be a beaut again.
I decided to try to spend zero, zilch, and not one dime on this project. So I used all old odds and ends around my house to refinish it.
Notice all the mismatching wood? Yep, that's right. Odds and Ends BABY!
My husband added 4 shelves in the hutch. I really love my books. Not only reading books but all of my photo albums too. I just hate the cluttered look of book shelves and really wanted doors, so this was perfect!
I had this old decal left over from my kitchen project!
We used two different pieces of wood for the backing.
I added some new hinges that I had left over from another project.
I really really really wanted to paint it a wasabi green or something like Ali did here, but to not spend a dime I just used some black paint I already had. And well, you all know me, I LURVE black!
Here is the inside.......
All my books are perfectly hidden.
There was only one problem....
I hated the bench after I moved this piece in.
So a quick touch up paint job and some new fabric... and VOILA.
I even spray painted the basket underneath too!
I am loving this space now!!
Wahoo....I love doing projects!
Created anything fabulous lately?
