from drab to fab: the craft hutch

 Ta-da!  Would you believe this gem was once a curb call!? You're witnessing the before & after of my favorite side-of-the-road FREE furniture piece yet!  I am SO happy I was in the right place at the right time to adopt this lovely piece.  After some serious sanding, primer, and a quart of plain white decorator paint, it has become the best thing that ever happened to my craft room.  Perfection.  Of course I couldn't show it off without snapping a few extra pics of its contents, some of my most beloved supplies:
How about you? What is your favorite freebie?  Have you ever found something on the side of the road and transformed it into a treasure?  I'd love to hear...

Oh wow, I LOVE this makeover!! And it's such a beautiful hutch. My favourite freebie was a makeover project for myself, too. I blogged about it here: http://elizaoverthemoon.blogspot.com.au/2012/02/restoration-furniture.html

First, I'm so excited you are back! I switched over to the other blog and have enjoyed the photos, but have missed your projects and the inspiration you provide. Your blog was the first one I started reading faithfully. Second, love the makeover! You did a great job!
