New Hutch

Today I'm super excited because the hutch I found at a local consignment store is being delivered. I've been looking for one for a few months. I originally wanted the one above from Crate and Barrel but just couldn't pull the trigger on the $1,000 price tag. The piece ended up being a little smaller than what I was looking for and after doing some more research I quickly learned big pieces like this don't normally hold their value very well.…

Taming the Animal Printed Chair

I was going to do a thrift store/goodwill post today but I posted a photo on Instagram this morning and decided to do this one first, since I slipped and showed off a newly made over chair.  (I'll do the goodwill post tomorrow!) Awhile back I did a post on a chair I made over and this is how it turned out.  If you'd like to see the before you can go to my furniture page and read about it.…
