My first post

If you are reading this post, thank you for joining me on my blogging journey! I have been wanting to create a blog for awhile, my own technical ignorance keeping me from it. What’s an HTML??? I still don’t know! So bare with me on the technical stuff! I am hoping to share lots of fun projects and to offer inspiration to you while hoping to find some in return!

Well since this is a crafting blog and my first post I might as well get things started with a project!!!

Here is a hutch that I found along with a dining set that I scored on Craigslist (the dining set will be a project for a later day!). It’s hard to tell from the picture, but the paint looked to be just primer (or flat paint). It was sanded in weird places, there was pink paper glued into the cut in designs, and it was filthy! There was also a glass door on the hutch that I decided to leave off.
With the help of my very knowledgeable mom, we gave new life to this hutch over a weekend. We gave it a new coat (a few actually) of paint, did some distressing, and the largest Mod Podge project I’ve ever attempted! I definitely attempted some techniques for the first time on this project, went out of my comfort zone that’s for sure. The inside of the hutch is covered in a black and white toile fabric. I had never done Mod Podge with fabric before, it is a little bit tedious but not very difficult. I think I’m in love! I want to Mod Podge everything now! I wonder if they sell the stuff by the case?
Well I hope you enjoyed my first post and I hope you come back for more! Please feel free to leave me a comment and also I would love it if you would follow me by clicking the “follow” button!
