A Teeny Tiny Tea Hutch and Blog Welcome!

Welcome to my very first post!  I want this to be a fun place where I can share my adventures in creative living.  For as long as I can remember, I've always been a homebody and loved sewing, decorating, crafting and cooking.  I also love a bargain so I'm always looking for ways to live the best lifestyle I can for very little money.   

I wanted to start by sharing with you a tea hutch I made this summer out of a ratty old nightstand I got at Goodwill.  It was so bad, I got it for half off the $4.99 price.

It was a really fun project to do. I've been blessed with two beautiful little granddaughters and we like to play tea party when they visit.   I added a shelf, sanded, changed out the broken knobs with wood knobs, primed and painted. I lined the drawers with red polka dotted fabric.  Since I had everything but the nightstand, the whole project cost under $5.00.   It's teeny tiny enough to fit tucked away in the corner of my office. Plus the drawers hold all their pots & pans & utensils.
Before- Sorry I don't know why it's on it's side.

I'm hooking up with Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch.  My very first blog party!  When I get the hang of this blogging thing, I promise I'll post higher quality photos.
