Hutch Redo

Busy week, busier weekend and so the remaining months of this year go.  Seems everyone is busy and pushing their use of time to the limit.  Had install issues with some new software and spent half the weekend fighting those.  Finally got it installed and now can work on a website for colleagues.  Hit one of my favorite haunts for treasure and found a few nifty things and a  beautiful hutch hiding under a nasty brick red paint.

 I needed a piece for display and this red hutch has so many possibilities.  A little white paint as a base, finish it with sand dune (a lovely sand color) and then sand key edges and you have a totally different look.

 Yup, this is the same hutch.  I love the final outcome and boy does it hold a lot of items.  It looks great in my main booth filled with some of my recent purchases.   And now some treasure I found this week.

A Hummel plate that I will send to my daughter-in-law who collects Hummels. A pair of Sacred Heart Jesus and Mary pics from the 1950s and a great give a way bowl that is marked on the back, Ware Drug Store.

Wonderful, early Hull buttermilk pitcher in that marvelous shade of aqua...I'm keeping this baby.  Lovely milk glass Hobstar pattern bowl, Pan Am Exposition souvenir plate...milk glass with kitties, 1910; and a neat 1909 centennial plate. 

The famous holographic Jesus that was found in most New Jersey/New York dens.  Terrific aqua frame.

Lovely vintage leaded stained glass piece.  Nice cathedral glass insets.

Wonderful vintage bride dress. Circa 1940s

Some of the milk glass pieces I have found over the last few weeks and that terrific transfer ware turkey platter.

The Amber Sandwich glass pieces are perfect for autumn tables.

 Just one more look at that hutch.  It just look so different with the new paint job.  Have a great week and blessings to you and those you love.  Sea Witch

A great makeover for that hutch, what a wonderful piece. I love that autumn leaf gravy boat(?)/pitcher. Thanks for a nice tour.

The paint change on the hutch certainly made a difference - it shows your wares to advantage! And as usual you've got some great finds, love the aqua pitcher.
