Today I am sharing the hutch I built from the wood we took off our walls of our Craftsman’s Bungalow. I hand painted Native American Indian scene on the hutch. Please remember I am not an artist, but surprised myself that I can paint a type of folk art painting. My friends, wanted me to hire a real artist to paint, this hutch and my armoire. I could not find the real artist, that I wanted, so I decided to go for it. I am pleased that I could do as well as I did with my painting.
View of the top part of the hutch, with some of my Native American Indian collection. On the top of the hutch, holds gourds that I have made and baskets, given as gifts, and one Choctaw Indian Basket I bought six years ago for $150.00, it was hand made by Effie Gibson. The first self holds, several basket, wolf, and Native American rock tools, a wedding vase used in Native American Indian wedding ceremony. The second shelf holds, baskets, picture of two Choctaw Indian basket makers, Effie Gibson and Miss Lula Mae, whom was my teacher on making Choctaw Indian Baskets. Also some of my buffalo. The next shelf in front of the scene I painted holds, Native American rock tools, pottery made by Native American Indians, which I purchased in Greensboro, Ga. The couple makes this pottery and sells at a local Handmade Arts Store. On the side of the hutch top, I made the gourd berry basket, by burning a design into the gourd and wove a pine straw rim, added leather and cane handle. The tomahawk, I bought in Cherokee, North Carolina.
View of the bottom of the hutch, I used silver Buffalo handles, and painted the doors in a Native American scene.
