Hutches and Cupboards

I just noticed while going through pictures I have 3 cupboards in my house. The one above stores my vintage and new jadite. This was one of the first antiques I ever bought-it was painted turquoise and was covered with about 1/2 inch of black grease. It must have been in a kitchen for about 50 years or so. We've had our TV in this-Hubby took off the back and made a plywood one, it's been on our porch and than I brought it back in and painted the original bead board backing white. It now stands in our entryway.This is the cupboard I decorate for holidays.
This hutch was bought at an antique store a few years ago. It was falling apart and Hubby redid it and made it sturdy. It has tons of storage and sits in our dining room. I almost took out the stained glass and put in clear, and I'm so glad I didn't. I love the different colored glass. It was already painted and it was meant to go that room!
My 3rd cupboard is in my craftroom, so you've seen that one. Love all the storage. What do you store in your hutches or cupboards? Any secrets out there?
My Graduate is getting his wisdom teeth out tomorrow, so we'll be at home for a few days. I plan on catching up on crafting and doing some sewing while he watches soccer and recoups. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Love your cupboards, and the stuff inside!

  3. Love the hutch's :) That is on my "get" list ;)

  4. I love your hutches!! I love the stained glass in the white one. I have two corner cabinets in my kitchen with stained glass in them and I just love them.
    I don't have any hutches in my home, but I have two with glass doors in my dining room that holds some dishes and white pitchers. The other cupboard is a cedar one that is in my sewing room and holds fabric and supplies.

  5. I love both your cupboards ! I love your Jadite !The stained glass in the second cupboard is just beautiful !

  6. Love the Hutches ~ I am Still going thru the 400+ Studio, so heading to your Creative Space Post next..... Nothing better than a Hutch to Store & Display ~
    Have a Wonderful Weekend

    (Hope the healing is quick on the Wisdom Teeth - Ouch!)

  7. I love hutches and yours are so charming Leslie! And oh boy howdy, I love your jadite, my favorite color.

    Hope all went well with your son's wisdom teeth and he's not feeling too poorly!

    Happy happy weekend,

  8. You lucky girl, to have so many cupboards, and a house big enough to hold them! I especially love the one that holds your jadite. It looks like it should be in Country Living or Martha Stewart!
    Happy Sunday!

  9. Oh, I like the one with stained glass best but I love the jadite in the other one-- how is that for diplomatic?

    I have a corner hutch in the kitchen holding amish pyrex, ramikins, fancy glasses and cookbooks behind the glass doors; fruit on the counter shelf and the secret unmentionables in the drawer and behind the wooden doors.

    I have 3 armoires about the house housing a multitude of items. Hutches and armoires are such a help for storage-- wish I had more wall space for more!
