I am almost done with my big hutch project. I have finished the bottom part of it, except for the hardware. I have to go back and exchange some of the hardware I bought at Hobby Lobby. So you'll notice that it is missing hardware in most of the holes but I do have two pulls that will be what the rest is going to look like.
Side note: I am now in love with Annie Sloan chalk paint!! It did wonderfully on this hutch. My only complaint is that I ran out of paint (I used a full quart) mid-way through the second coat on the top part of the hutch. The soft clear wax is awesome too. I applied it on this bottom piece with a cloth. I will do a full post once I'm done with this whole project on what I think about the paint and waxes.
Confession: I've never decorated for Halloween before. This is my first year to go all out. I think there are many reasons why I didn't decorate in the past but mainly now I am all about each holiday season since Jonah is getting bigger.
So this hutch/buffet is where all my holiday decorating is going to happen. We don't have a large house with lots of surfaces for decorating. This is it and it's plenty for me. :) I used what I had on hand or re-purposed some things so I spent little to nothing on this one.
The frames were yard sales finds or ones I had that I spray painted. The pumpkin stands were made from Dollar Tree candlesticks and small plates, spray painted in black chalkboard paint. The votives were ones left from our wedding that I hot-glued black lace trim around (from Hobby Lobby 1/2 off!). I got the glass pumpkin dish at a yard sale and bought the biggest bag of candy corn at Sams. The printables were all free ones that I found on Pinterest. So total I may have spent $20 including the yard sale purchases.
Here are some more shots of the hutch and some decorating I did on the top of our TV armoire.
