I see Shabby chic hutches in my future! Yipeeee!.

UHHHH....where's the paintbrush? What sneaky so and so took it?

I was soooo excited! Hubby said he was trying to cut costs...and didn't want to have linen closets built in to the new structure ($1500.00) and would I mind terribly to go out and buy a couple of hutches that could be painted(he tried to say shabby chic and fumbled the words around...can't even type what he said! hahahah) and used for holding linens? OH MY GOSH! YIPEEEE!

SO HERE IS the two hutches...he helped me unload them to take pictures for my blogging. He actually joined in to help!

This is me in disguise...cleaning all the goock off...yes that's a word!
This one had been left outside in the rain so it is very distorted and worn out...and I'm lovin' it!
My supervisor! Big smile.

Yipeeee! Hopefully this project will get done soon!

(Posted to add...I did finish this and it looks amazing...but I'm off to a wedding and didn't take a clear picture...darn) Will post later.

Playing along with Met. Monday and our wonderful hostess with the mostess SUSAN!

I laughed at your comment about your husband trying to say shabby chic. Too funny. I can't wait to see how they turned out. I'm sure they'll be wonderful.
