Kitchen Hutch, Chest of Drawers and Etsy

So I just got a really cute kitchen hutch/cabinet piece that I'm going to paint to sell but sometimes it's so hard to decide on color! Here are some cute hutches I found on Pinterest - what to pick! I think I'm leaning toward gray or black but I'll post a picture when I get it done!

Here is a cute little chest of drawers in my booth with ball feet painted antique white and the drawers are a light gray and distressed!

Nate had a segment on his show today (The Nate Berkus Show) on Etsy. Etsy now has over 11 million members and over 800,000 active shops and sales in 2011 through September are over $350 million! It was neat because someone from Etsy who did the interview said that their offices are completely decorated in items from Etsy shops and when a new employee comes on board, they are given a handmade desk and $100 to furnish their desk with Etsy finds!

Etsy is a great place to find unique items and you can know that when you order from Etsy, most everything is handcrafted from a crafter or artisan and not mass produced! A lot of sellers on Etsy share their stories of how they started out selling part-time and eventually were able to quit their "day jobs" and have a thriving business selling online.
