The hutch/buffet/sideboard/whatever

We have a problem, a serious problem- lack of storage.

Currently our dining room looks like this:

In my dreams...

A few weeks ago I was at my absolute-all-time-favourite bargain-hunting locale and spotted a big timber hutch/buffet/sideboard/whatever and thought hells-to-the-yes I can D.I.Y this baby in no time and a week later (yes a week! It’s a D.I.Y. PB for me!) I am happy to say it’s almost finished (applause).

This was my inspiration:

Shmick white paint-job

Or moody black

It needs just one more coat of paint and the dining room can be used for dining and not storing (applause).

I’ll show y’all some progress pics today and hopefully this weekend when Mr Hutch/buffet/sideboard/whatever gets settled in and beautified he’ll knock your socks off.

So there you have it, only a few more sleeps to the big reveal! Ok, ok so I know I am more excited than I should be but I know it’ll look smashing and really begin to transform the room.

Adios me queridos! Kx
