Pottery Barn Inspired Hutch

This cabinet /hutch I bought to use behind the register area, needing more drawer space, and wanting doors so i can shut them, hiding the magazines-crafting decor giving a more clean & organized appearance.
Although the blue is nice, just not my color. So i just painted it white, and not wanting to spend a lot I just kept the knobs.
But I do remember a few years back Pottery Barn had this cabinet/hutch that had cork board,inside the doors and thinking what a great idea that was.
So with one door i made it into a chalkboard and the other door a cork board.

Now not only will I have more hide able space,large drawers, a clean uniform look, but doors i can write quick notes/reminders, and a place to tack articles-pictures or requests and still shut the doors..
Not too Bad for $50 including paint, cork board,chalkboard paint.


  1. Looks fabulous!! Love all the additional stuff you added it it! Great job!

  2. love that redo with the chalkdboard inside door. and hey, michael buble greeted me when i came over here from your comment, so that rocks right there! i'm off to poke around some more, too.

    i can't thank you enough for following, i am super thrilled! there are plenty more before and afters up my sleeve, so you won't be dissappointed!

    happy day for me!

  3. Beautifully done!! I love the inside of the doors. How handy! :-)


  4. Oh what a fantastic idea to do the chalk and the cork board! I love it:) Very unique, I've never seen that done on an armoire before!

    You asked about my Le Jardin de Lavande, from my junior high French memories I'm fairly sure it translates to The Garden of Lavender aka Lavender Garden.

  5. How clever to add a chalkboard and corkboard! I LOVE it! xo

  6. I love this! Especially the inside.
    Thanks for stopping by. You asked about the shop.
    Well, it's the slow period. Vacations, school letting out. Not a lot happening in there. Although I did sell 4 pieces of furniture, but no slips yet.
    Good luck with your slipcover. Isn't if funny, not only do you have to take it off and re-fit it a thousand times, but it grows and grows each time you take it off LOL!! Especially the sofas!! Oh My!
    Can't wait to see it finished!

  7. Not bad at all. How is your shop going? Business good? I sure hope so cuz you are so talented.


  8. Ok, this looks AMAZING!! Love the corkboard and functional!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your oh so kind comments!
