A couple of weeks ago Mom and I stopped at a moving sale.
At first glance, we didn't notice this hutch as it was filled with all kinds of miscellaneous things for sale.
Within a short amount of time, I suddenly realized that this hot pink chunk of love was a hutch!
I know, not noticing a hot pink hutch doesn't seem possible. However, I wasn’t alone.....as I asked how much the piece was, it seemed like everyone at the sale looked over as if they too were questioning ... what piece?
Mom and I were quoted $20. We couldn't pay for it fast enough ! We quickly loaded it in the car and whisked it home with us.
After we unloaded it, we looked it over more closely and noticed the amazing tin panels on the bottom doors. Ohhhhhh we couldn’t wait to see the transformation!
A few days ago, Mom pulled out her drop cloth, kilz , brushes and some ivory cream paint from a previous project....and the project begins.
That's my Mom!
She is coming up on 75 years of age.
She doesn't look it .
Everyone thinks we are sisters...we are.
She has been junkin her entire life. She inspires me ... I'm so blessed to have her as a Mom.
Tin panels, oh yes!
Mr. Higgens LOVED his plastic tent, under the table Mom was using to paint on.
Today we brought the updated ivory cream
hutch to the booth at Harpeth Antique Mall
( Booth 11 )
We also updated the booth.
I think it looks fabulous.
Well done Mom!
