I found this pair of hutches in Seattle from a gentleman with an Australian accent. One of the reasons I love to paint furniture (besides the actual transformations themselves) is that it allows me to meet all kinds of neat people with stories, backgrounds and tales.
I fell in love with so many aspects of this set. I loved the flutes, the corbels, the circular detail on the drawers, the molding and then the way that you can put them together to make one very large unit. This one, I told my husband I can not sell. I had visions of white dishes, silver and glassware tucked behind those cute doors and I knew exactly where it would go in my new house. So, I started painting it.
This was one massive project. For the outside, I selected Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan in French Linen and on the inside, Old White. I think it’s pretty amazing how all of the details begin to pop out when somethings been painted where otherwise they were hidden before in the original wood.
Sadly, the sweetest gal from Phoenix came and picked these up yesterday. I think this transformation is really special and I’m glad they are going to someone that will appreciate and love it just as much as I have.
