Still Playing!


Okay so here she is......... I think she may be a little overstuffed with pretties, it's still a work in progress but I thought I would show you what I have accomplished! I decided to leave the aqua for now, I kind of like the color with all my white couches, so I'm leaving it (; I have some tweaking to do but I'm happy with the end results so far, I also took a pic of the dish I made a while back, I bought the dish at goodwill and then added my broken china pieces to the lid, I also did a teapot, it was a lot of work cutting the china, I think you need really good glass cutters for this type of project (; Did you notice my feather tree with the hearts on it, I got a whole bag for a dollar at a church thrift store, they are all hand stitched. I was happy to be able to display some of my favorite teacups from my Nana's collection, I think she would be pleased. I decided to put the old knobs back on the hutch, they're porcelain and made in Japan, I was going to use wooden ones but I really like the original ones after I tried them.

Hi Kelly, the hutch is gorgeous. Your pretties really show up nicely against the aqua. (accidentally deleted my prev. post)
Take care~

Amazing job on your hutch! I love that it's filled with lots of pretties. :) There's a coziness to it when it's filled up. ;)

Lee Laurie said...

Good morning Kelly! I haven't had time to do anything else with the hutch yet. I've been so busy at work! I'm exausted whenever I get home. I'm leaning towards the fabric idea. That way I can change it out more often. I thought maybe a pink or green toille or maybe a small floral. I'm not sure. I will have to play with it.
Hugs,
Lee Laurie

Tanya said...

Your hutch looks great! I love your mosaic project also. I have some silver pieces that I never use and I think they could use a little jazzing up like this!

Cynthia's Cottage Design said...

Hello Kelly!

What a nice professional job you did on your hutch! That looked like a big job; I'm glad you had the intestinal fortitude to stick with it (you did fast, too!)! That piece will stand the test of time - I bet you never get tired of it!

Good job!

fairmaiden said...

Oh Kelly it looks so pretty!!! The aqua looks great. I agree it goes well with your white slipcovered sofas. But a bit overstuffed, I think less would look better.

Liz said...

Kelly, stop by my blog... I'm doing a give away! ;)

Oh my goodness! I love it! Actually, I have had thoughts to paint mine from white to a gray or bluish or greenish gray...the pale blue of yours is so inspiring me!!! But it is such a big project painting pieces of this magnitude...so I think I shall wait for a rainy day to decide;)

My Maine Cottage said...

Wow your blog is so fun!! I need to visit more often! I'm going to be painting some furniture myself in the coming weeks, yours came out great.
