An Update to The Hutch Post! The old brown hutch I bought for $14.99 at the thrift store is now cream colored and holding my fall herb garden

Remember the post in June where I spray painted an old hutch I bought at a thrift store for $14.99?
I wasn't sure what I was going to use it for at the time but I figured for the price, it didn't matter.

When I had it 'done' (or what I thought was done at the time), I just didn't know what it wanted to be and I wasn't thrilled with it just hanging out in my dining room.... it looked like it needed a purpose.

So this past week I used sand paper to 'distress' the finish a bit; then went to Lowe's and found some herbs and herb seeds as well as a great deal on these fabulous galvanized tins that come with a planter box with chicken wire and little chalk board area's to write the plant name on...  (on clearance right now in their indoor lawn and garden center - but they probably are selling fast because they are that cute!).

Now my little vintage looking hutch has a purpose in life... or least for this fall and winter.  Then he may get moved into the laundry room - because I've been wanting to redo the laundry room for quite some time and it's getting closer to me actually getting it done instead of just sighing and thinking "I really need to redo this space..."  every time I walk into it.
