Cra(p)ft Room Hutch Reveal

You remember this gorgeous hunk of Antique Goodness, yeah?


It languished away, I'm ashamed to say, in the back of my garage for over a year....
I kept looking for the right piece for it to sit atop.


Low and behold, my daughter returned an old dresser my grandfather had made years ago.
She downsized to a smaller place and it found itself sitting next to Antique Gorgeousness in my garage.


It was love at first sight.  
And the two became one.


They're starting their marriage in my cra(p)ft room.


Working hard storing my pretties above, and the not-so-pretties in the drawers below.



This room is becoming a conglomeration of lots of meaningful things from my mama and gramma, 
and the hodge podge pieces I've thrifted over the years.
The hutch offers lots of spaces to display these beauties.





The shot below shows the old Ralph Lauren sheeting I've been hanging onto forever.  
It was the inspiration for the wall and hutch paint colors.  
I'll be using it make a curtain under my cra(p)ft table eventually.


The knobs are from Hob Blob, and a dear reader in Georgia who picked up the last five I needed and mailed them my way. (Thanks again Karen!!!)
Some areas I left with the 'drunk person technique' look, or didn't paint at all:



The room isn't done yet, but here's a peak to the left of the hutch, over my ironing board:


I have lots of primitive and rustic type stuff, so the room will be English farmhouse-y cottage. 
This bread board hung in my gramma's kitchen when I was little. 
 I'm loving that I can pick up the berry and pinks from the inspiration fabric:


So that's about it.  I hope I can show you the rest of my cra(p)ft room eventually, but I've kinda lost motivation and am on to something new already. (squirrel!)


I'll be bringing the new couple to some parties this week.
 Make 'em feel at home ok?
I'll bring the Little Debbie snacks too.

Oh Cindy, it looks fabulous!! I've been looking for something similar for the scrapbook stockpile that's taking over the family room. Well done!!

Wonderful, I love them together and the memories you have stored there, just wonderful. Funny thing is I have some of the same pieces from my Mom's home. Maybe that is why I love it so.

Cindy I love your cupboard. Can I come to your house to play? Your green looks similar to the green I painted my china cabinet and the inside of my kitchen banquette benches. Your crafty display is GORGEOUS! The sheet is beautiful inspiration. Really, I know I'm gushing, but I love your sweet cra(p)ft room - yes, even it's name. And also.......squirrel.......
