White Hutch Treasure

Since I have been sharing about hutches this week, I thought I would feature this treasure, which is not only useful in my family room/library, but a keepsake too.
 
It first belonged to my mother for many years.
 She passed it on to me nearly 30 years ago and I have enjoyed it throughout my home and locations we have lived.
 
Of course the white is not original, but it was given a new life when I painted it about 6 years ago.
On the top, I display a few white treasures along with a birdcage and an old cherished figurine of a white dove with a pink rose.
The doors have permanent glass insets with sealed grids.
 
 I love the arched tops.
The vintage hardware is original.
Let's look inside.
The lower cabinet holds lots of storage.
Isn't it special to live with an old piece that you know was loved by your family?
 As this hutch was loved by my mother?
 
 I think she would have loved it in white, because in her home, she also painted many pieces white over the years, before that was even in vogue.
 
 I think she knows!
 
Thanks Mom~
Thank you for stopping by and your welcome visits.
 
Today and all weekend, I am joining Country Whites Weekend,
 
 hosted by Cindy and Dru from Old Time Farmhouse and The Country Farm Home.

What a gorgeous piece. I love all your treasures too. White paint can sure remake a piece can't it?

Your hutch is beautiful painted white. I have a wood trunk that my hubby made for me many years ago that I love and I'm wanting to paint it white.
Yes...it's great to have an old piece that has been loved by our families.

What a lovely hutch! I have a Hoosier cabinet that was passed down to me from my grandma. It is so nice to live with a piece she loved so much!

You're so lucky to this hutch that belonged to your mother, and you've filled it with such pretty treasures. I have the bedroom set that my grandparents bought when they were first married in the early 20s. Family pieces are the best:-)

I wish my china cabinet had some history!! When I quit working 4 years ago that was my first project, painting the cabinet white! PS: the bottom of my cabinet looks just like yours...That is why God made doors!!!
