Small update from yesterday’s post. I had all of the options saved in my shopping cart at each site, and late in the day I noticed that the Benchwright Hutch had sold out since that morning! It was my favorite of the bunch and I was feeling a little regret for not grabbing it in time. Turns out my local store had one on display, and since it was the floor model and on sale, I got one at almost half off. So now I have a hutch with nothing to put it on, but yay?
And with that, have a happy St. Patrick’s Day and a good weekend!

I’m a little disturbed that one of those colors is “broccoli brown.” I don’t even know how long you’d have to cook broccoli for it to turn that color.

Those color swatches are absolutely gorgeous, and the story behind them is fascinating. Thank you for sharing.
