I remember it sitting in the corner of my Hey Bud’s dining room.
I remember my dad insisting it could be moved when my Hey Bud died.
I remember it sitting in our garage waiting on a new home.
I remember my dad painting it white when he moved it into his new house.
I remember moving it back to my Hey Bud’s house after I remodeled it.
I remember Grunt Labor standing in front of it the first time he saw it and proclaiming it a future liquor cabinet.
And I remember the look on Grunt Labor and Nick’s faces when I told them it was my great grandmother’s china cabinet, while they had hammers in mid-swing knocking out one of its shelves.
Grannie Eva, it may not be a china cabinet anymore, but its still one of my most beloved pieces.
And the fact that I named my kid after you, makes up for me making it into a liquor cabinet, right?
This piece has seen many transformations in its time. The latest hutch update cost less than $15, but made a huge impact.
You may remember when I updated it with wrapping paper last year. The wrapping paper definitely helped to break up all the black, but I still wanted something more.
I picked up flat corner braces from Home Depot a few months back . They already came in a brass color, but I wanted them more gold, so I spray painted them, then screwed them into the corners of each door.
I used 4 packs (4 are in a pack) at $2.47 a pack, so I spent about $10. I already had the spray paint on hand.
I love the “campaign” feel they give the cabinet.
I also switched the old wrapping paper out with a new roll I got at HomeGoods for $3.
$13 for a hutch makeover with big bang?
I’ll take it.
Update! See the brand new red look this hutch got right here!
