Christmas Kitchen Dresser

 Earlier in the year I bought some chalk paints,

with great hopes of making over our kitchen dresser,

and my craft hutch.

A few months back I finally painted the dresser

and am so happy with it.

I've been looking forward to December

when I could decorate it for Christmas, 

and here it is.

These Grindley jugs love their new space,

I left them up for Christmas but added greenery and twinkle lights.

On the next shelf I made a little forest scene.

(Although I don't ever want to see 

a deer that is bigger than a house!)

A jar of snow and cinnamon

and this little girl with her lantern

also look better on their new white backdrop.

And in case you're interested,

here's what the dresser used to look like:

and here it is now:

Remind me to show you my craft hutch, too!

It is so lovely Fiona, as are all of your treasures that you have displayed. I hope that you never find a real deer bigger than your house in your garden too! The little girl with the lantern is so pretty and christmassy! xx
