Merry Christmas To Me!

Look what my Bobby got me for Christmas! (My idea- of course!) It's not an authentic Hoosier but it's a lot like one which is good enough for me! It has a metal label on top that says Kitchen Kozy. Isn't that sweet?! I've had a crush on this hutch for a whole year! I saw it the first time I went into my local antique store. It was being used as a display piece and was brimming over with goodies! I can hardly wait to do the same with my own goodies! This little drawer is a bin and it tips out! Eeeps! I can't wait to put something in there!


All the knobs on top are crystal. It even has a cutting board! These pics were taken at night so you can't see the gleam these knobs get.


Here's a shot with the side doors open. Only one panel has glass. We're going to remove that and put white chicken wire in all 3 doors! The top part of the hutch will be for cuteness and the bottom will actually store kitchen stuff. ☺


The bottom drawer is a huge bin! I've had so much fun scrubbing on this hutch! It looks so perfect in my old farm house kitchen. The scruffy white paint matches the paint on my other cupboards!


I hope you can be happy for me girls! I've had to sell or give my furniture away so many times through the years and I hope that this hutch will be my "forever' hutch! I'll take more pics once I get it decorated and now I will be on the hunt for more vintage kitchen tins and such!


I'm linking up to the Fun Friday link up party at my sweet Jennifer's blog, the Sugar Pink Boutique! Go see her today becauseshe's my friend AND she's having a candy light give away!

Have a great day girls!

It's just fabulous and I am thrilled for you Miss Cutie Pie Holly! I can't wait to see it all decked out. Imagine that someone took the bottom of that and put tall legs of stainless steel on it. Then they took off whatever top it had and put it on Craigslist for FREE! I got it last month and we had an enamel top with no bottom that fit it perfectly and I use it as an island now in my kitchen. I couldn't believe it when I saw yours and learned it was called Kozy Kitchen! Both of them meant to be with you and me! HPS xoxo Nancy

Sandie said...

Holly I love it! All the drawers are precious! So happy for you! I don't have a Hoozier either, Mine is a Mcdougal! That always makes me laugh for some reason. I can't wait to see how you decorate it! Merry Christmas!

Lucky you! Your cupboard is lovely! I have an original Hoosier (stamped 1934 on the back) and have to say, yours looks very similar. Enjoy it:)

Jann Olson said...

Hi Holly, Love, love the cupboard! It is so close to a Hoosier. I have one that I bought over 20 years ago at a yard sale. Can you believe that? I love it, but it would not fit anywhere in our new more open home. Saving it for when we finish the basement. I love the tip out bin and the white color is wonderful. Merry Christmas!

SCORE!!!! What a great Christmas Present.....it's awesome. The knobs are great and it's gonna be so cool filled with all your goodies. Merry CHRISTmas to Ya'll from Houston, TX
