I got this old hutch early this year when we came home from California with all my Mother-In-Laws china. I really like the heaviness of it and love all the room it has. But you know me, I can never leave well enough alone. So I painted it black and now I really, really love it.

I also painted this old sideboard and my mirror frame black. I also painted my mantel black but don't have any good pictures of it yet. Be careful if you come to visit me or You just might end up painted black. It's amazing what you can do with a free gallon of paint. Thanks GABE!!!

Janis, you have such an eye for what will look good. I'm sure if I painted something black it would just look black, not stunning! I love seeing all the things you're doing with your house & yard.

HEllo Sweet Janis!

It is amazing how things work...I JusT walked in the house for a minute and THOUGHT OF YOU! Thinking Janis has a grandbaby due soon...then I turned on my computer and there you were on my blog! Okay, now that is really special to me! AND I have ALMOST the same hutch as your Mothers' and I want to paint it BLACK! You must tell me how you did it...sanding etc. Anyhoo, I have a very dear friend that is dying of ovarian cancer and some other things on my heart at the time. I just came home from my friend Narvie's and will head out again in a minute. She is home.

Thanks for thinking of me. Please email me your email address if you want. Mine is on my profile.

Thinking of you my dear!
