I purchased this vintage dresser a while ago and hadn't decided what I was going to do with it. A couple of weeks ago I realized that I could use extra storage and more work space in my kitchen. Idea!!! I can use this dresser as a kitchen island and storage for extra linens/dishes/utensils/etc.
But she needed a little update. I have been wanting to add a little color into my decor and found this great shade of green. It was actually a piece of paper I found that had the exact color I was imagining and Home Depot color matched it for me. It's actually a little deeper than the color of a Granny Smith apple. A new coat of paint, some white porcelain knobs and I couldn't be happier with her new look.
Here she is center stage. And yes, I have a leopard print rug in my kitchen. It's the wild side of me coming out.....RAWR. The photo doesn't do her justice, but she looks great! and she is the perfect POP of color.
I've added a few more treasures to my hutch......more cookbooks I just picked up, an ivy plant, and some flower frogs. I'm really liking the look of my hutch now.
I had to show you this piece I just picked up from a thrift store for 25 cents. I have no clue what it was off of or it's purpose........but it has two elements I love......metal and a heart. (The smallest things can make me so happy). I love my mini frogs too :)
