Today I am sharing my china hutch.
I used the wood from the walls of our Craftsman’s Bungalow, that we are remodeling.
I then built this open hutch,(Yes, by myself) and painted it with brown milk paint.
I then used a wax for milk paint for a finish.
These dishes are a twelve place setting, my sister Gloria has given to me, instead of flowers while I was in the hospital.
The twelve blue chargers are glass, I picked up at a thrift store in South Carolina.
Also on the bottom shelf are my churns, the one on the right, belonged to my Mother, I churned a lot of butter in it. The picnic basket is a gift from my daughter Jennifer. The kitchen is stenciled around the ceiling, with basket of blue flowers and a wreath. I still have the wood walls in my kitchen.

  1. Oh I love it. You are so creative.
    I have been pondering how to use the space in my kitchen above a baseboard heater. I will use only 4 or 6 inch boards for shelves. This will be built in. But you post inspired me to make it more ornate. You are waking up my creative side that has been asleep for a while. Thanks.
