The Hutch::Newly Styled

First, I have to confess my utmost respect for anyone who knows how to properly use a camera.  I, unfortunately, am not one of them.  But I try and appreciate all of you who are so kind {and those that have given my tips...extra thanks!} about my photos skills.  I've learned a lot and hope to learn more!

With that in mind...I wanted to show your our "styled" kitchen hutch.  When you last saw it here, it was rushed and not put together.  I've finally gotten my groove on with the styling and hope I got the right light to give it justice.

I decided to stick with a black, gray/silver, and white theme.  I think it's worked out well!

The white plate we received for our wedding really pops with the gray wallpaper, don't you think?



 Here is the white cake stand I found at a local antique store...I also had fun incorporating the mercury glass.

I love my polka dot Kate Spade vase and of course my Gwyn Cookbook!

And here you can see how the hutch picks up the black and gray specks in the granite.


Just as a reminder...one more before & after.

Some of you have asked where we got the wallpaper...how we painted...what paint we used, etc.  Here are some answers for you:

Wallpaper: Allen + Roth Spanish Tile from Lowes found here.

Paint: Valspar Semi-Gloss Black {available at Lowes}

We followed Just a Girl's tutorial.  It's amazing and the best part?  NO SANDING!  That's right baby...a huge time saver!  The foam rollers are also a genius idea.

It took us about 2 weekends total.  We cleaned and primed the first weekend and the hit it with the black the second weekend.  I highly recommend light brush strokes...that may have been the only place we went wrong.  It takes time and patience.  If you do see areas that have excessive paint that has dried...simply sand it down and repaint.


Thanks again for all your support during this project!  I'm really happy with how it turned out and hope this post does it justice!  :)
