Introducing... Ms. Daytona!

Whew!  It's taken me a bit longer than I anticipated to complete the hutch I picked up in Daytona a couple of weeks ago; mostly due to the heat... (and getting sidetracked in a few thrift stores)

But, she's finally completed!

Here are the befores:

I would like to introduce you to:

Ms. Daytona!

Ain't she pretty?

She's a petite thing, standing only 69 inches..
(she's a saucy one!! LOL)

But wide around the middle at 54 inches..

I lined and mod podged her single drawer
with french script scrap book paper..

And the bottom interior..
Now she has her own hidden, unique style.

I distressed her edges
so she'd stand out in a crowd a bit more..

And, waxed her all over so she'd
shine just a bit,
like the superstar she is!!


Now that Ms. Daytona
has made her debut,
I'd love to hear what you think!!

From that.... to this!
