Where Did The Red Hutch Go??

4.19.2010

When I changed the table and chairs in my breakfast room HERE I had to move the red hutch to a new location in the house since this new table and chairs was so much bigger. The hutch use to be Mr. Savvy's mom's so I had to keep it in our home.  I thought and looked around the house and thought some more and then a little light went off and I knew the only spot was in this little hallway that runs between the front sitting room and the great room with the powder room that comes off of it. This hall is narrow but thank goodness so is this old hutch.



It is hard to get a good full view of this in this narrow spot so there will be different angles .



This shows the vignettes on the top and bottom with just some stuff from around the house.
I use this piece for extra storage.



I took out the original glass in the doors and added decorative brass chicken wire I ordered on line and I stapled in this red checked fabric from Hobby Lobby.



I also heavily distressed this piece. It was originally brown and I painted it red a few years ago.

This shows the small hall



other angle from the sitting room



These are two drawings we had done at a charity ball in 1999.
I love the whimsy of these two drawings for others to enjoy when they see them
by the powder room.



This never did look like me in the face. Even the people I worked with then said it did not look like me, but he did capture what I love to do!!



He did a much better job of capturing Mr. Savvy and all his glory. He use to play golf regularly, but now has moved on to his new hobby of restoring old muscle cars. This shows him standing in water to make his shot!






I bought this bee print at Hobby Lobby a few years ago and I just recently repainted and glazed the old brass frame.



Close up of the detail



This is the best full shot I could get from our bedroom doorway.

Thanks for the many comments on how our house came to be and please let me know you came by. I really love hearing from you.


Y'all come back now,

KIM

  37. Hello Kim ~ I just recently became a follower of your blog. I am enjoying all your great tips and ideas! Loved the info about how you and Mr. Savvy built your beautiful home....and the hutch looks great in the hallway!

  38. The hutch looks great. I have wanted to re-do my spice cabinet and I wanted take out the existing panels and add chicken wire but I didn't want to see the spices, I also wasn't sure if I wanted to paint it or not and if so what color to do. Now I know exactly what I am going to do!!!!!! Thanks so much for solving my decorating dilema:) Thanks so much for the sweet comment you left on my blog too!!!!

  39. I have always loved that piece of furniture. It's even better that it came from Mr. Savvy's family. I think the transformation you gave it with the red paint, fabric and chicken wire is fantastic. You made it look more current without taking away it's original charm. It looks like it's always been that way. I think it looks great in that hallway too. It adds an unexpected pop of color when you come around the corner.

  44. What a great hutch. So glad you found a spot for it. It looks so nice there and picks up the color of the sofa in the next room. Love that elegantly framed little rooster picture in your hutch, and love the fabric on the doors. laurie

  45. Love the red! I want to do the same thing with chicken wire when we finally put cabinets in the cabin's kitchen! Thanks for becoming a follower, I am doing the same!

  46. I adore that red hutch! You did a fantastic job on that frame. I haven't tried glazing before. In fact, the reason I usually decoupage things is because I'm not good at all with paint. I'm lucky when I can get spray paint on a piece! Your home is so lovely. And those floors are gorgeous!

  48. Hi Kim!

    That hutch is just so cute. Everything on it looks just right. And I love it in the halway. I have my antique china cabinet in the hallway at the top of our stairs and I just love it being there.

    Have a wonderful day.

  49. Hi Kim! I am behind in my blog reading:( Trying to catch up some tonight.

    I love the red. I have a lot of red in my home and it is just a wonderful pop of color. I know that the piece is special since it was your husband's mothers piece.

    Very nice.

    ReplyDelete
  50. You know, Kim, that red hutch is so wonderfully done and is a "magnet piece" in any room. I love the tone of red. The richness reminds me of the "Concord Red" from Behr, or, Lady Bug Red (Ben Moore) with antiquing enhancing it. Stunning...Just Stunning! Karen

  51. Love the color of the hutch, and the aging is just perfect, it looks realistic and not too over the top at all. Great job, anyone would be proud to display that in their home!

  52. I was wondering where that was going to live. I think it's gorgeous! Love what you did with it.

  55. That is an absolutely wonderful cabinet! I love the details- the brass chicken wire and gingham.
    We also have one of those celebrity pictures. My husband got it at an event, I couldnt go because I was too pregnant at the time. Ours is Lucille Ball I think, now Im going to ask him to unearth it from his treasures and think about using it somewhere in our home.

    ReplyDelete
  56. That hutch is very striking in its red colour and looks perfect in its new spot. Certainly, with its special meaning to your family, you couldn't get rid of it. Very nice vignettes you've done on top and in it too. I really like that "Bee picture" beside it and the way you've updated the brass frame - I need to do that to some of my frames!

  63. I love that hutch. I am assuming that it was a brown stain before. It is absolutely charming in distressed red with the chicken wire and cute fabric panels in the doors. Great re-do!!
