The All New Shabby Chic Hutch Dresser!

Here's what the hutch Kim sent me looks like now I've waved my magic wand! You can see what it looked like before in the previous post.

The best part is finding things to fill it up with. Oh, the hutch isn't crooked, once again it's my photography! Kim also sent me those sweet little floral plates.

I had a lot fun filling up the drawer. There's a notebook, scissors, a candle, matches, a photo, a map that someone has put away without folding it up properly (can anyone ever fold a map up properly!), an oversized pencil, a museum brochure and a leaflet for the local pizzeria.
School holidays are here now so the mini making has slowed down a little!


  1. Better, much better!!
    Now is so beautiful...

  2. So wonderful. I love the Cat Kidson book....so adorable. Love your work. Glad you had fun with it.
    Hugs~ Kim

  3. I wish I had a magic wand as talented as yours! I love what you did with that hutch!

  4. That looks wonderful Mecedes!
    Cute plates!
    Luv the basket, Im keen on baskets I must find a tutorial to make one or 2, and those little maps are soooo cute!
    I'm sure your having a lovely time in the holidays!I really enjoyed having the children around for a few weeks... that was way back when!
