Hutch Transformation ~ Summer

I bought a bottle of Murphy's Oil Soap to give the Hutch a new coat of shine. Looks like she was neglected for some time. I don't know why but I've started to call "her" a "she" Funny is that!

Here she is shined up and decorated in all my antique/farmhouse finds. Those lovely deep red juice glasses were given to me by my MIL and the blue dishes were my Husbands Grandmothers. I pick up any matching pieces I can find at thrift stores/flea markets. Still on the lookout for tea cups and matching saucers, those are hard to find! The white soup tureen is from a company called "Celebrating Home" , the same company that my new paper towel holder is from.

I would love some ideas on what, if anything, to add to each side of the Soup tureen. Should I leave it as is or add something else? 

I just know I'm going to love decorating "Her" every Holiday!

She's Arrived

Just look at her!! 

I was able to buy her for a steal and she was delivered tonight! She is a 1960-1962 Cochrane Co made out of North Carolina. Really for her age She looks nice! I wish it matched my table a tad bit more but for now I'll leave the table and hutch alone, paint scares me.

I have always wanted one but they always seem to be out of our price range and since we no longer own a truck at the moment it was hard to get someone to deliver.

This spot is perfect for her right now. I need to buy Liquid Gold to clean her up, someone smeared something sticky on her, they had kids so maybe jelly?

What would you use to make her shine?

Now I'm off to Pinterest to see how many of you have decorated your hutches.
