Hutch Reveal!

I actually think it's supposed to be a bookshelf buuut we'll continue to use it in our kitchen/dining area until I find something else to redo :)))

It was a trial and error run...but on the whole I love it so much more than what it was......I'm enjoying learning as I go and this piece was not one I am too worried about :)


  1. Oh my! I had to back and look to see if that was the same item! :) Way to go! Tell us how you did it sometime...for those of us who have noooooooo clue! LOL

    1. lol..I'm horrible at taking "before" the top shelves were already off and sanded before I remembered the pic :)
      I just sanded it all down, not all the way just made sure it was all "scratched" and then started painting. I chose "heirloom white" ....then I sanded down the edges for the distressed look but it didn't show as much as I wanted so I wiped on some dark stain just on the edges and covered with a clear coat...I'm just learning as I go but it gives me something interesting to do ;)

    2. I also changed the knobs...and I tore off some of the fancy pieces to give it a more updated look....cleanlined and simple ;)

  2. Cool! It looks great! :) Good job!
