The Hutch is finally Finished! {another furniture make-over}

First of all, thank you for your comments and stories from my last post. It is comforting to know I am not alone! I enjoyed reading each one-thanks for sharing. ♥

I am thinking about folding the laundry, and putting it away, so my husband doesn't have to spend his free time helping me with it.... {yes, he is like that}, but before I think some more about it, and maybe even do it, I thought I'd post a project we finished some time ago. {finally!}

Here it is BEFORE:

It came with another piece on top, that we used to make a bookshelf for our boy's room.
For only $50, it was a great deal! It is solid wood, and from the 1960's or older, as I found a piece of paper inside of it dated, 1967,when we bought it. How fun is that? (Well I think it is fun!)

Here is the SPACE before and after:

Now if we could just afford the nice T.V. to go with it... {sigh} someday soon....

Can't wait to show you the rest of the room! It is almost done- and then I might actually enjoy spending some time in the loft!

Thanks for reading! Hope you are enjoying SUMMER!

This turned out great! I love it. :)
I just read about your fall. Gosh! That's scarey. And then to almost do it again...I am thinking you're getting too big in the front and it's throwing you off balance. How big is this baby so far?! :):):)It wont be too much longer until he's here, thank goodness. Take care!

LOVE it! It looks SO nice. I like the contrasting top - I've not tried that yet... :)

Love it. I ws just thinking this morning that I wanted to email you for some refinishing tips. You have done so many great projects. I have an old coffee table that is in great shape but ugly (think 90 forest green). I'm sure it will need to be sanded and primed, but really don't know where to start? Suggestions? I wouldn't figure out your email address, but you can email me.
