Craft Hutch

I haven't been in every home in America, but I'm pretty sure my master bedroom is one of the largest, especially when you consider the size of my entire house.  I live in a paired home, fancy term for I'm connected to my neighbors, and it's only 1800 sq. feet.  My bedroom with bathroom is the same size as my living and dining rooms.  Really, not complaining, love the space.  I'm not gonna lie, it would be nice if Connor and Lauren's rooms were bigger.

So what do you do with all this space?  You refinish a ton of furniture and shove it all in!  I did try to 'design' the room, not really sure how successful I was, but I worked really hard and did my very best. 

One of the things I'm not a big fan of in my house, is the amount of storage.  This is were the Craft Hutch comes into play.  I needed something to put my zillions of craft supplies in, no lie zillions.  Ideally my bedroom isn't where I would like to store my crafts, but until the next house with an office/craft room, this is were it'll have to live.  Lucky for me my room is huge.

I know I sound like a broken record, but I don't have any before pictures.  My goal is to be better about this in the future, but in my defense I did this over the summer.  Plus I wasn't even blogging then....any way that's my excuse story, and I'm sticking to it!


Close up of the detail on the top.  Oh so pretty.

Here's a short run down of what I did.  Sanded it down, primed with Rustoleum spray paint and painted it with Rustoleum Heirloom White.  The hardware was spray painted Rustoleum satin black too.  Then I painted the interior of the top section with Valspar satin black.  To finish it all off, I used Ralph Lauren glaze in black and sprayed it with a Rustoleum satin poly.

This is the bottom, before the doors were put back on and the hardware.

Wow, my garage was pretty messy, oh wait...still is...Shh, don't tell Mr. Type A.

I was gonna just leave it on this side of the room, but my gal Angie at All My Treasures, said move it!  (If you stop by and check her out, tell her I sent you, spread the love.)  So I had the hubby move it.  Funny story, he was gonna say I should move it too, but knew I wouldn't listen to him.  He's probably right.

 Ta Da!  In place all finished, and loving it's new home. 

Thanks for stopping by and checking her out.

I was thinking of redoing a hutch for crafts after falling in love with a $2500 one. This turned out nice. Was this a dining room hutch?

That looks great, Tammy and I know what you mean about storage. Even with a large house I still lack storage. Our closets aren't big is the problem and no linen closet! Thanks for linking up.

Hi there! Great makeover! I saw this featured at Miss Mustard Seed and thought you would get a kick out of my makeover from a few months ago

Great job, and great thing to have. I think I need to do something like this. I have decorating and craft type stuff stuck in several different places. UGH!

Love what you've done.

abeachcottage said...

It really turned out great. What a beautiful master bedroom. Love it.

Courtney said...

Love it! I too lack adequate storage, I think our home is 1200 sq ft... but it has 4 teeny bedrooms, a teeny living room, and I do daycare so the "playroom" is not a place to store craft stuff either.

I think I could squeeze something like this in my kitchen though, in the corner...

You have inspired me!! Haha!
