The Yellow Hutch (of my dreams!)

It's finally done!!!! I finished the hutch I bought last Saturday. I finished this bad boy in 1 week! I'm pretty proud of myself.

Here is the finished product!!!


I am now able to get all of my serving wear out of their boxes and store them in this hutch! I have some vintage Pyrex dishes at my parents house I want to get to put in the top glass part. I am super excited about the finished product!

Granted, I am a perfectionist and this piece up close is anything but perfect, but Matt told me that it gives it "character" and makes it look more "antique" like it's been used and we didn't just purchase it from Ikea or Crate & Barrel.

So, there it is! My Birthday present from My husband (and kind of to myself since I chose to do all the work even though he graciously offered several times) :-)

What do you think?!

I'm in complete LOVE with this hutch. The color is fabulous--please share the name! And yea, I totally agree with your hubby about the imperfections giving the hutch more character. Old, chippy, and imperfect sounds PERFECT to me :) Great job!
