Trying to fill out Grandmamas Basement....

Heard a distant rumor somewhere that Michaels might stop selling their hutches... so I decided to pick up a few for Grandmamas basement. She'll need several shelves for potions, 'parts' and spices :) Also possibly a cabinet for Uncle Nick-Nack from the first movie - haha! I always thought that was hilarious.

Anyway - I'll really have to beat these up and de-frill them a bit but I think it will be fun! Plus I just had to pick up a couple trunks for Wednesday and Pugsley. I hope to wood-burn a few pirate images in them... possibly.....

Going out of town for a bit, but will be back to finish floors, start putting together the house and beat some furniture!!!


  1. Your so lucky having Micheal's stores Ara, in th UK we have Hobbycraft but its nowhere near as good. Cant wait to see what you do with them.

  2. Looking forward to seeing what you do with all of your new purchases.. Mini Hugs

  3. I bet if I looked hard enough I could find some printies for you. LOL, now I'm going to have to go and watch the movie again to see what I come up with.....

    Never thought of using those little trunks as trunks, duh!! What a good idea!

  4. Debie, oh yes I appreciate them so much!! If you ever need anything picked up and sent over just let me know. We have a Hobby Lobby near by as well!

    Debbie, hopefully after this weekend I will be able to spend a whole night bashing these to my hearts desire... I am SO excited about it - haha!

    Katie, Oh thank you thank you! I have started collecting a few family portraits of the Addamses that I will want to print and hang up. I want to do the movie covers (converted to black and white) and then also several of Charles Addams original cartoon drawings in the kids rooms! Not sure what kind of boxes they would have in the kitchen..... let me know if you think of anything!

  5. I heard the same rumor and have started stocking up in small waves.

    They are so darn useful!

    Have a safe trip!

  6. You know, I never seem to be able to find these at my local Michaels; will have to try some of the others in town. Can't wait to see what you do with these!

  7. ...I just posted a blog to you....come see! :)


  8. Ara you have an award waiting for you on my blog. :-)

  9. Goodness NO! Where did you hear of this rumor? I must make a trip off island to my local Michael's since one never knows when such things will come in handy....and thank you for the heads up.

  10. Thanks for the heads up about the cabinets, there are so many ways to use them. It will be so interesting to see what you do.
