Two pieces of furniture arrived at my apartment this afternoon, One is this large hutch. It is antique pine and I am feeling very lucky to have had the good timing of a friend downsizing. Even though I measured, until the movers put the top part on the base, I was holding my breath, waiting to confirm it would fit. If not in my kitchen, I would have some serious furniture swapping out to do. I needed help filling this up with pretty display pieces. Fortunately, I was able to get Meg to come over to help and actually left her alone in my apartment for 2 hours while I had a client appointment. When I was on the way back home, I called her and she said she had been busy. Yikes. I was a little scared.
I walked in and saw all my favorite pieces displayed so beautifully on my new hutch!! She found stuff I had forgotten existed. Knowing I love blue and white, she went to work putting it all together...
I love this piece because it has so much storage space, which I need so much.
This chest of drawers was my other purchase..so pretty but a tad big for my space. I also now have to move up my mirror a few inches since this piece is taller than the original chest I had there. Meg put my frames, silver pieces, books and moved a lamp from my bedroom to make my new entryway very, very welcoming.
Lucky I have an abundance of these framed etchings here...moving my mirror up will make it possible to add one more on each side. I am all about symmetry.
The last big change was moving my couch off the wall and putting this chest under my painting. I am needing one more white Ikea chair to go on the left side. It changes the whole room and looks amazing.
After moving everything around, I have some cleaning up to do when I get home tomorrow..I need to make room for Meg to come back and keep going. I will have a whole new apartment when we are done!
Thank you thank you thank you Meg!!!
I love everything!
