My biggest "ABC" project to date!

First we have to rewind back to October 30th, when I showed you a little sneak peek of my next ABC (Anything But Cookies) project. For those of you that were not around then or for those of you that may have forgotten, I am speaking of this little beauty:







This deserves a close-up!



Now we can fast forward to the present. In my own defense, it has not REALLY taken me 3 months to complete, but hey, life happens! The lower piece has been in my craft room for quite a while, but the rest if the refinishing process was slowed quite a bit by the holidays.

I wish I could be "that" person that gives you some ridiculously low final cost, but because between my husband and I we managed to break every...single...piece...of...glass (6 in all), it's just not going to happen. Having said that, my final cost was considerably lower than if I would have had to purchase this piece new.

Anyhoo, this is how it looks now...drum roll please








Whatch'a think...not bad, huh?! This is by far the biggest project I have taken on...is it perfect, absolutely NOT...is it good enough for my craft room, ABSOLUTELY! Would I do it again...yep, but I would do things differently. I learned a lot of "do's and don'ts" the first time around!


Thomas requested Superbowl cookies, so Nana will not disappoint...I will post a pic when they are done! Till then, Happy Baking!

There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies!

Found you on Just A Girl's blog. Your cabinet turned out really nice! And I love your idea of using it for craft storage. We recently did away with our dining room (never used it) and turned it into a craft room for me, but I kept my china cabinet because I love it. It's sitting in my living room right now, sticking out like a sore thumb. I had decided to be a big girl and sell it, but now I'm thinking I might take a cue from you and use it for craft storage. Thanks for the inspiration!

Oh My Gosh!!! This is frickin' AMAZING!! You really MUST take me on one of your junking trips with you and Melissa as I'm going to need some amazing storage pieces like this one . . . and of course I'll need you to redo them for me, too. That won't be a problem will it?! LOL Is it Tuesday yet?!

This looks fabulous! Complete makeover. I love the four doors on top. That is not always easy to find on a hutch! Makes for easy loading and unloading. Great job. I bet you are very pleased!

Love it! It is a big undertaking, but you did it - Yahoo! I am working on a craft room with a hutch, so I was peeking at what you put in it! Ha Ha Thanks!

Mallory said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Your blog layout is ADORABLE! I love that you used the hutch for something besides China. That is genius! I'm your newest follower :)

what a transformation! Ohh so sad about the glass breaking. Lessons learned, huh?
I love the end result, and what a great storage piece for crafts!

Love what you did here. I have two armoires that I need to do something with for my office/craft room. Too many projects…so little time.
