Christmas Dining Room Hutch

Posted by on Dec 10, 2012 in brass, Christmas, dining room, thrift store | 10 comments

In the morning, a VERY exciting thing is going to be happening!  Do you remember the nursery that I decorated a few posts back?  Well, precious baby Jack will arrive in the morning at about 8:00 am.  Gotta love a C-section!  It is not my baby, but my best friend’s.  And, guess who is going to be the photographer of all of his precious first hours?  ME!!!  So, he is going to be the best kind of baby for me.  I will get to hug him and squeeze him and keep him and then take him home for him to keep his momma up all night while I snooze away!

I shared some of my dining room yesterday, and today I will share some more.

This hutch is one of my favorite pieces of furniture in my house.  I bought it about 12 years ago at a yard sale for $75.  It has been painted twice, and will probably see some chalk paint before it’s over!

I am still into collecting brass from the thrift stores.

I tucked a little nest an ornament in this pretty little dish.

The very top of my hutch houses some of my brass finds.  And, the next shelf houses my little glitter houses.

I added a few ornaments to the large glass vase.

I think the candlesticks look great grouped together.

  1. Why am I not surprised your hutch if decorated beautifully? Love it all girl. What fun we get to have making our homes pretty and seasonal. Great hutch.
    How exciting to be there for neighbors new baby and be able to photograph it all. Guess it would be kinda nice to know when/what you’re going to have, alot easier to plan. Will you put any of baby photos on your blog?
    We had a buffet/hutch also but sold it couple years after we bought this place along with the table/chairs. Think I told you we don’t have a dining area. We had the buffet/hutch and table/chairs all crammed into our little mudroom. Had much of my glass/jadeite collectibles on it but it seemed all I got to do was dust them, not really enjoy them as I did in our KY house.
    The way KY house was laid out was much more conducive to having room for furniture. I really miss that house but no sense crying over spilt milk as house is sold and fixed up again.
    The gal that bought it had to get an extra loan to get house habitable after other people literally wrecked the house/porches/roof, etc. and stole appliances. Was a nightmare trying to get them out of that house, they took extreme advantage of us being here in CO. We didn’t make a penny off that house and we had put $25,000 down when we bought it, plus having a $10,000 garage built. Very hard lesson to learn.
    Well think I’d better think about something else cause when I think about the hell those people put us thru I want to commit murder.
    Happy Week

  2. Hi!! What a great blog you have! I just saved 4 photos that I love! The candlesticks on top of your hutch are fabulous! I have tons of brass candlesticks and for some reason I was led to believe they were no longer trendy! I don’t care now if they are or not!!! Thanks for setting me free!!

    May joy, love and good health be yours for the New Year!!

  3. Oh Melissa I want your hutch – badly.
    It’s absolutely gorgeous – and of course you decorated it beautifully – but even if you hadn’t I still want your hutch – badly lol

  4. Your hutch looks beautiful, Melissa! I wish I had room for a great storage piece like that here. I had to give up the one I had when we moved {my daughter has it now} because we have no room for a full dining room set. Enjoy that little baby!

  5. Love love love!!

  6. OK this is kind of a funny question, but where do you STORE all of your decorations when not in that season?

    I find that decorations can multiply and take over and turn into clutter QUICKLY at my house. hahah. I have been doing the bins in the attic, but was just wondering about your system?

  7. Wow, your hutch is beautiful. I love those glitter houses and white dishes.

  8. Hi! Stopping over from Savvy Southern Style. I had to check out your hutch, as I have a very similar one. I loooove the way that you’ve decorated it for Christmas!!! Very classy, and so beautiful!

  9. Your hutch is beautifully elegant. I like your glitter houses. Something different from normal Christmas villages. Thanks for sharing!!

  10. Oh Melissa! Your whole hutch is very beautiful, I love all of it, especially the little turquoise ornaments!
    Hugs, Cindy
