to Texas from Chicago. It is a two piece hutch that I really don’t think go together, but it works so who
am I to question, right?! Regardless, it was beautiful and perfect for her, not to mention the price tag was oh…
$10 (cha-ching). Yep, right up my alley!
I took my pictures separately because this thing is a beast and very heavy to move back and forth so you’ll
have to use your imagination.

And you know what, it looks soooo much better!! Except for that nasty carpet, yuk, but I did attempt to pull it up. Problem was, what’s underneath is even worse!! Sammy about had a cow when I told him what I was planning on doing and of course, with everything else he deals with me on, he took it with a grain of salt and just let me do my thing!
Off to the land of Pintrest!

Not only will you get to see another part of my house, but I will take you inside a place that should be forbidden to all outsiders….Ashley’s room! You all know she left for college but her room remained as she left it.. a mess! Ok, I will admit I added to the mess when I started hoarding all my furniture in there but let’s be real, it didn’t get that way from just me.
So again, technically not a “thrown away” transformation, but it’s a good ‘before and after’ non the less.
P.S. I took the pictures as is, no cleaning, so consider yourself warned!

The colors I chose were mint green (which is a little hard to see with this blinding sun) and light gray. I thought the color combo did this guy justice without going too extreme. I had it for sale at our outdoor market, but since the market was REALLLLLYYY slow, it ended up coming home with me but only because there was no room for it in my booth. I’m sure it won’t be too long before it goes in the booth and off to a well deserving home.

I mean, look at this guy. He has so much potential and he doesn’t even know it yet.
And did you see his price tag?!

Even if it’s not finished, I wanted to show you where I am so far. By the way, thanks to Sammy for holding the back part up so I could take a quick picture for the blog!! He was getting a little antsy there for a minute. He even shook his head at me and said “why do you need this photo…now??”. Haha, you’d think he’d learn not to question the method to my madness!

Hope you all have a great weekend!!
Mine was less than eventful but I think I’m going to start a weekly “To Do” list so I can feel like I’ve accomplished something during my weekend. I always have the best intentions for my weekends but they eventually end up a blur and are gone way to fast. Not to mention, I’ll start on one thing, go on to the next and the next, and when I look back at what I’ve done, I haven’t accomplished one single solitary thing. Does that happen to you too???
Case in point, I finished painting my side table that I’m about to show you, but then put it aside before I put a finishing coat of wax on it. Then I woke up Monday morning thinking “CRAP, I didn’t finish”. So seriously guys, Rita needs some help! Whether it is physically or mentally, I have no idea but I’m so all over the place it’s ridiculous!
