I bought this China hutch a couple of years ago from a neighbor who was downsizing, with the intention of painting it black. Well, that didn't happen, I just couldn't bring myself to go to that much work (besides I am the world's worst painter). So here it sat, oversized and out of place, plus hubby HATED it but being the patient husband that he is he kept the grumbling to a minimum.
I really loved the amount of storage it had, lots of dishes, linens and decorations were stored in the bottom drawers and cupboards.
However, I never could bring myself to fall in love with it. I am sure in its day it was a very sought after piece but let's face it, it had gone out with the previous century.
This is what my heart truly was yearning for. A simple black beauty that is like Goldilocks in the baby bears bed, it is JUST RIGHT!
Oh the fun I will have decorating it for each holiday and season.
