This isnt the total morph of what it should be, but its not too bad so I thought I would go ahead and share with you all in its half complete state.

This is what I started out with, an old dark hutch purchased from a man on (Yes...you guessed it) Craigslist for an incredible deal of $25.00.  

I knew right away that this was going to be one of the pieces I sell...I liked the lines, not to country (I love country items but I'd rather a more flexible piece) So out came the sandpaper and black paint.

I still have to paint the top hutch part, but Im so impatient that I had my daughter help me move it in from the garage on Friday and we emptied the other cabinet and loaded up this one. Of course I couldnt fit all my dishes, so I had to put some china and my wheat set into the garage for now.

I hope to complete the hutch when I come back from SC in mid August...I cant work on it this week, too much packing of children to do. lol.

Ugh.....my laptop caught a virus so I dont have all my usual stuff saved and I had typed this up yesterday, my husbands cousin thankfully is an IT guy and restored her to her wonderful self...except I cant get into pics and things are still a little weird.

So Im linking this up with Susan over at BNOTP of course ...thats my Monday party...lol   Im using the regular button due to my laptop issues....

And also with Marty over at Stroll Thru Life (wonderful blog)..awesome pillows this week!
