Corner Hutch

Before...

This is my little shabby corner hutch! I keep all of my blue and white dishes in it. I have had it for a few years. It was already shab-i-fied when I bought it. I think that it is probably from the 50's but I'm not sure about that. Cute, but not spectacular. Right? ... Anyway.... I have a pine hutch that is from the 1800's that I love. (I will show it sometime) But it has the back painted pale blue. However, it never occured to me to paint the back of my white hutch blue until I saw Cindy's at My Romantic Home. Now, I can't imagine that you haven't seen her blog but if you haven't you have to head over there and take a long gander. She has quite a beautimus blog. It is a dee-light for the eyes! She painted the inside of her pretty white hutch blue and it just made such a huge difference that I decided I also needed to do this.


What a super simple high impact project. It totally improved this corner. Thanks for the inspiration Cindy!

It turned out beautiful! I am getting ready to paint a garage sale find this weekend. I may use scrapbook paper to do the back of the cabinet, or use a coordinating color like you did. I love to visit Cindy. She always does such great job on her redos!

It looks great. I have a larger corner hutch I took out of our breakfast nook because it's so dull, but now you are inspiring me to spruce it up and bring it back in the house. YOu created a beautiful piece of furniture and I love all the decorations you have on it.

Hi Liz,
Just saw your comment about the mag and had to tell you, I ordered a subscription to but I just had a feeling we weren't going to get them this month, so I bought one. Love your hutch, I'd like it with a wallpaper on the back of it to.
