Years ago, when we still lived in Australia, I found this hutch/dresser at a garage sale for $20 or so. We placed it in a corner in our dining room, and one side was facing the wall. I was in a hurry to get it painted, since I hated the bright blue distressed finish it had at the time. So, I just painted the parts that showed. ha When we moved to Missouri, it happened that it could again be placed with the blue side to a wall, so all was well. However, in our current home, the blue side has been showing since we moved in nearly 2 years ago! ha I just now got around to doing something about it.
Instead of painting the side white, I decided to order some pretty peel and stick wallpaper from eBay to cover the chipping "wood". The wallpaper was in Korea, and after a couple weeks, an opened empty tube arrived in the mail. :-( Thankfully, the seller sent more wallpaper to replace it quickly.
This little cowboy seems very pleased with the effect. ;-) Can you believe how big he is getting!?
I papered the other side to match, of course. And I also did the edges, since the edge on the right side was blue...
Now every time I see this hutch, it makes me smile instead of cringing. :-)
My husband Ben, our three little boys and I now make our home in beautiful North Carolina.
Ben is Australian, so we lived in Australia for several years after our marriage, and our first two children were born there.
We love the Lord Jesus Christ, and strive to please him with our lives everyday!
This blog is mostly for sharing my hobby of home decorating, but family posts are frequent, as well. ;-)
