What I Did During The Storm
You all know that I am a tea lover and that in my inherited, but not valuable, china hutch I house most of my tea things. I've been wanting to freshen up the interior of the hutch for quite sometime, and since I had quite a bit of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint left, I decided to take the plunge and just do it!
Here is what my hutch looked like in 2007 before I painted it. It had water damage and so I used to drape that fabric and cover it up.
I painted it white and have loved it ever since!
The interior was painted a light green and it looked pretty with my tea things.
Seven years later it is looking pretty beat up and I was no longer loving the green.
Here is the beginning of adding the Annie Sloan "Emperor's Silk." It is lighter here than it looks in person.
Here is the finished look, and the red is more true to color.
As you can see my collection of teacups and teapots has grown since 2007. I'm a happy girl!
