Hey there peeps! Well today I’m sharing a project with a bit of a story behind it. Last year our family purchased a retro camper. A 1966 Banner to be exact. I can tell you it’s been a real family project and labor of love to bring it back to life and we’ve been able to take it out for mini vacations, which is so awesome to get out in nature with the peeps. Our theme for the camper has been retro 50’s diner. That’s a theme right? So we have been adding crisp white paint….aqua accents and chrome and lots of vintage inspired décor items. I created this little display hutch to hold a collection of small ceramics.
I super love the colors and retro patterned papers on the back of this hutch. I created the base with the fabulous Split Front Box. Instead of assembling it to be a closable box…I secured the lid portion to the sides and treated it as a fixed unit. I should note that I added a layer of thick chipboard to the back as well to help secure the sections.
Aqua and red are the colors and lightened up with some crisp white. I used regular acrylic paint which covered beautifully. I’ve also included fun cork covered clips to secure postcards or smaller mementos. The funky polka dot ribbon and birdie brads are a fun finishing touch.
This center box portion is nice and deep and I can add my new collection without worry that things will stick out and possibly get knocked over.

Okay that was a long post for me huh???? Anyhoo..I’m wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
