Mom was here last Sunday and we spend some time sewing. I told her I wanted a little runner (is that the right word?) for my hutch. I think without a clear coat on the hutch, it will always be tacky. And I'll tell you what, I'm definitely not painting that sucker again.
To stop the tackiness, Mom sewed me a small runner with some leftover fabric from my quilt. I'm in love with it! Gotta love homemade goodness.
