In the before picture above, you can see the hutch that is now painted red and in my dining room, see here. The wall color has been changed. This color was called Oak Cask and we lived with it for a year, before we decided it was a little too dark. It has been repainted in the AFTER pictures Straw Doll, from Sherwin Williams.
The picture below is a before picture of the hutch that is now in the kitchen nook. We removed the glass inserts and replaced them with chicken wire, painted it black and added red toile fabric to the background (Manuela from The Feathered Nest gave me that idea).
The ceramic pears and apples were purchased from Pier One about 8 years ago. The cookbook behind is the one that has Kijsa's art on the front cover.
The picture above, I am standing in my dining room, looking through the kitchen to the kitchen nook. We have an open floor plan in our house and you can pretty much see into the living room, dining room, kitchen nook and den from each of those rooms.
Well, I hope you enjoyed the pictures. Whew! Am I glad that is done. Now I need to decide if I want to paint my bedroom furniture or refluff the back porch....hmmmm. Oh Wait! I forgot, I still have to paint and mosaic the buffet in the dining room...
