dining room makeover. An ugly little thing isnt it. It was my moms, who gave it to my oldest sister, who gave it to my youngest sister, who didnt really want it. Uhh... thanks sisters. Mom said it was about 35 years old (said it was a piece of crap). Not an heirloom quality piece of furniture, for sure. The bottom doors and that middle panel between them are plastic that was very well painted to look like wood.
Just a beat up, ugly piece of crap. It did a good enough job holding my china, but my dining room is only 10x10 and much too small for this thing.
I think the only real pieces of wood are the molding around the top and bottom, and the support shelved. Needless to say, I didnt have any concerns about painting over all that fake wood and plastic. Actually I was scared of sanding it and getting lead poisoning, so I just used a rub on, liquid sander stuff. Seems to have worked.
One day I decided that it would look great in my guest bathroom. I measured it out and it seemed like it would fit perfectly in this little nook.
Since it was going in my (mostly) black and white bathroom I decided to paint it black. So I did, and here you go. The following pictures were taken with a different camera and settings. The diamonds on the wall aren't really that bold. Its more like the above picture.
Lets get back to the pictures shall we? mkay
(I personally think reading on the toilet is disgusting), wet wipes, and extra potty paper are within easy reach.
What do you think? Do you love it? I do... I say that about all of my projects, but this is right up there with my burlap pegboard lovin it!
I have been collecting and gathering up glass containers for all the fun stuff in the hutch.
I want to get a basket or something for those toilet paper rolls. I could hide them, but I think I like them out.
The mirrors in the hutch really brighten things up in there. The big mirror used to hang on the mirror over the sink, The one with the writing on it had a hook on it that I pulled off.I might rearrange and add stuff, but I like it for now.
Oh this piece had brass handles and hinges. I never really realized it was a shiny brass at one time. Here are the pieces before. This is what I always remembered it looking like growing up.
Thanks for visiting.
