Hutch Project Part 1

Monday, March 15, 2010 |
So I was browsing blogs and came across this:  

A coffee table cut in HALF! 
Who would do this?... Melissa from 320 Sycamore

This became this:
(A bench!!)

What a woman!!!  Anyways, this gave me so much inspiration I was scouring my house for something to makeover.  And I found it!  A hutch that came off a dresser that I bought off Kijiji.  The hutch is really what I liked about the whole dresser, but they were an ugly streaky painted brown.  I WAS going to paint them white and put it in my girls room.  But it stayed ugly brown and finally got moved to the basement.  But after this post from Melissa @ Sycamore 320 I had to do something about it before it went off to the freecycle.  

So here is the before:

And this is after I cut it in half.  (Actually, my husband cut it, I watched)  Then I primed them:

Can you see where I am going with this?

And look, I even used a jigsaw for the very first time and made these great shaped cuts.  

Here is half of the project:

A cute bench for my kids outdoor playhouse.

Don't you love the colour!!!  So summery!  

I couldn't find the right colour at Walmart, but Home Depot had just the perfect blue.  It's called AQUA.  I can't wait to put it in their playhouse, then I can take another pic.

As for the second project, it's in progress and will have to wait a little while.  

But it will be posted as soon as it's done, I hope it's a beauty!

Wow, I LOVE what te lady did to her coffee table. What an imagination. I am really impressed with what you envisioned for the hutch too. The bench is so cute. Can't wait to see what you do with the top half.

This is awesome. I just visited TT&J for your shelf/hook transformation. I LOVE it. The more power tools used, the better, I always say! ;)

I'm having a link party and Target giveaway on my blog. I'd love it if you joined up! Have a wonderful day.
