A color ditty:

Weathervane
Is my main
Color-love
It is insane
  

Older hutch
Turned anew
Now it's fresh
As morning dew


Dingy brass
What a plight
Rub with steel
Out of sight!

Added lights
Inside they shine
Hark! I hear
Bring On The Wine!

Greenish walls, purplish hutch, black table & red/brown floors.

Phew, that's about as rhymie as I can get ... werd to me!

I used Martha Stewart Living paint in Weathervane.
It's not black, it's not full on purple ... it's just lovely.

The green on the walls, the black of the dining table and the red/brown floors all play together nicely.
While I do love the look of B'faye this hutch fits
here better ... it's staying put.

You know what this means right?
Yup, since I don't have B'faye in here to put lamps
on for the ambiance lighting I'm going to have to
try my hand at a birdcage chandelier.
I've been wanting to for months now and we have all of the fixins ... so check off 'hutch' from the To-Do list and
add chandelier.

    1. Hi Cathy ... Martha Stewart has some very dark blues in her line ... you can check them out at Home Depot.
