Just finished this dining room beauty

Just finished this hutch yesterday.  I was so fortunate to find this at a moving sale and I offered the guy $35.00 for it and he took it. Yippee. It was quite dirty and it looked like some if the glass shelves were broken.  I cleaned it up before bringing it in to paint it. Here is the before picture  And please note that these photos are from my iphone, so they loaded a little bit blurry.  I wanted to post from my iphone to my blog.  First time!
           I decided to use chalk paint as I have come to know that when you have a piece from the 70's and there is veneer and non-wood mouldings, that the best thing you can do is to use chalk paint.  I made my own chalk paint in this case and then sanded it off for the distressed look and also added two appliqued elements.  And here are the results . . . .                  
           
 I loved loading it up with cottage whites. I am very happy with how it turned out.  Here are some more views.
           
 And so to make room for the new hutch I had to do some changes in the dining room.  First I had too move this piece by my front door and here is the new spot for it  
Next I had to move my teacup shelf to my craft studio
          And to make room for that, my old shelf for the rubber stamps had to be sold.  I am so happy with my new look in every room all because I wanted a hutch in the dining room and I did it for about $40.00 Whoo hoo.
