Three years into marital bliss we up-rooted our family and moved to Germany.
While stationed there we purchased this hutch at a small furniture shop.
That was over 25 years ago and it still looks just as beautiful as the day we purchased it.
We had it in storage since moving, over a year ago.
It is such a beautiful piece of furniture and I really wanted to find a place for it in our current home.
We hauled into the living room.
Placed it on the only empty wall available.
And there it sat.
For a month.
I added a basket
And still it sat.
For another couple of weeks.
And on a recent visit to Hobby Lobby I found these platters on sale in the Easter/Spring section for 30% off.
I thought they would look great standing up inside the hutch.
So I snatched 4 of them up.
We used our router to cut a groove in the shelves for the platters to rest in.
And there the platters sat.
For a couple more weeks.
When I finally decided to add a few final touches.
Like this little silver creamer that had belonged to my Grandmother.
Along with this silver tea pot which had belonged to my Grandmother as well.
I found these pewter salt & pepper shakers at the Goodwill.
I picked this silver dish up at a local antique mall over Christmas time to hold dinnerware and thought it would be a perfect addition.
Along with another Goodwill find.
I placed a bowl of green apples on the bottom to add a touch of color.
And here it sits.
Happy to be home again :)
