Restyling My Antique Hutch

Well how was your Easter?! It was actually snowing and freezing cold here yesterday (gotta love Colorado) but we made the most of the day. We watched church online, had lots of a yummy food and stayed in PJs all day long. It was pretty great, despite the fact that we couldn’t do a big family celebration. But that will happen soon enough and we’ll get to have all the celebrations we want once this is over! Anyway, yesterday while we were lounging around the house I decided restyling my antique hutch for spring was a good project to tackle. I added in a few of my favorite antiques and it turned out pretty cute, so I figured why not sure it with you lovely folks today! Here’s how it looked before my little restyle sesh:

Kinda bland huh?! Not much razzle in that dazzle. It definitely needed a refresh. Here’s how it looks NOW:

That adorable seed packet storage box is from Amazon. I snagged it last year and I was so excited to get it out of storage for spring. Isn’t it cute?! I love styling it with a few vintage seed packets and labels.m Unfortunately it isn’t sold anymore, but this set is similar. And the faux potted plants are from Target and only FIVE BUCKS each.

I had fun restyling this little antique hutch for spring. AND best of all it kept me entertained for a bit, which is always a good thing when you’re in stuck inside and quarantined, right?! RIGHT. Anyway, I hope this post gives you a few ideas for your own home. And if you’re bored, be sure to go HERE to check out more of my spring decor from the last five years!

PS: today is the last day for the Sole Society sale. Go HERE to see my picks!

Sarah here! Nice to meet you. I’m a mama to three, wife to my high school sweetheart and accidental blogger. We recently moved to our little homestead on ten acres and we're loving the small town life in Colorado. I hope this space can inspire you to create a home you love and enjoy the simple moments the most.

          I love the refresh! Nothing wrong with the original look, but the refresh feels much cozier. I also like that even though there are different items, it still feels very balanced. Well done!

      I love your cabinet and the styling you did with it! Sometimes small changes can bring many smiled!!!😉 I am also in Colorado and it’s our typical Spring weather! One day it’s beautiful and warm, the next we are having blizzard warnings!😩 I think it’s a little harder with all that is going on in the world! So thankful for our Savior, He is our Hope!

    Love this look Sarah wondering how it would look with the door off and maybe hang it on a wall it is gorgeous or under the cabinet

      I thought about that actually! Might be worth a try.

    Love it!!! so pretty. Contrary to some of the opinions here, I love the look of several items placed together. Great job. To each their own, I guess, but…. I was taught when I have nothing nice to say, say nothing. Love and hugs, Angela👍🙏

      So you think it’s because we are in a global pandemic and life sucks at the moment?? Maybe that’s why she is down? And instead of being fake, she is being authentic and real which is a rarity On Instagram.

    I love it!! You captured the transition to spring beautifully and eloquent! I’m sorry it’s so cold and dreary there, but don’t worry you’re not alone. Oklahoma is frigid (well to me anyways lol) but like “they” say…. warm weather will be here before we know it😘😘

    I LOVE that little seed chest and the seed packets! What a cute idea for spring decor! Here in Virginia we had been having some warm sunny weather which had us in the mood to do yard work and plant some things then it took a turn! Woke up Saturday morning to snow flurries, wind, and cold. Then Easter was cold, rain, and storms so I feel ya! At least warm months are closer than they were. Thanks for bringing some spring though!

    Love the vintage seed packets and container. I collect old scales and have a similar one in a milky cream color.

    Pat Jones said:

    Sarah, I love most of your post but was highly disappointed with you and some of your viewers that posted negative comments toward those that gave comments of not being fond of your display in your antique cabinet. Everyone doesn’t think the same but everyone should be welcome to give their response. Yes, I personally liked the before picture myself. I felt it looked cluttered in the after picture, but that is just me. I don’t want to criticize you or your follows but it wasn’t the nice thing to do calling the ones that wasn’t fond of after post negative. Give it some thought please.

    I have always looked forward to your new blogs but I look forward to them even more now that we are closed off from the world. You are a beautiful decorator and I love your style. As for the nay sayers…my aunt used to say : “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything.” Good advice I think!
