So excited I came across this party today over at Jennifer Rizzo!   She is having a HOOK UP YOUR HUTCH PARTY today September 22nd.  Go on over and join the party, and let's she what you've got.

For those of you who visit me often you know besides everything Italian/Spanish or roosters.  Hutches are my next best friend.   They say diamonds are a girls best friend, but I'll take a nice antique hutch over a diamond any day.  Just the type of girl I am, guess that's why Big Daddy has such a hard time shopping for me.   As some of you know from recent posts, he's improved a great deal.   2 antique pieces for Mother's Day and 1 set of dishes just because (love that man. lol)

So let's get it started in here.....

This is my black beauty.....she started out rough but with  good cleaning and sanding.  I think now she is rustic and beautiful and the roosters love her too.

This is my baby brandy, she was 1 of the antique pieces I got for mother's day. She is now relocated to the other side of the dining room and holds all of our vintage wines, liquors.   So she is now the liquor hutch girl.

This is snow white....got her from a woman on Craigslist.  Its in original condition (I removed the hardware because I started to refinish it but as you can see) Its now the Lucky 7 Design home accessories line supply closet. lol    It does hold my grandmother's vintage linens (from Italy) in the bottom and our everyday sheets.

Now this is Grandpa Gray, I saw this on Craigslist and had to have him.   I didnt have the asking price, lucky for me the guy lived 1 town over and let me pay him in installments.   Im now sure what I want to do with him, he is in the workshop and needs to be giving a good cleaning.

This is pretty pine, I scored on this Craigslist find.   It's 2 pieces and in amazing condition.  Im not thrilled with the green so that will probably get painted out white or gray and I think Im going to lighten up the pine a little bit with  a whitewash.   The hardware on the drawers definately needs to be changed out into something more rustic like stainless pulls.

Well sadly, the last 3 are for resale and once they are refinished they will go up online.   Im keeping black beauty for my self, she fits into the rustic italian kitchen perfectly.

Let's she how you hutch.........
