A Whimsical Makeover: The Hutch Edition

SO my friend Christie totally hooked me up with this great hutch. I was ready to try something that was not "waist high". I think Christie (the shop owner) was happy to hear this as well. So off I go to my favorite colors and dry brushing technique. I chose a mix of Duck Egg (surprise), Provence and Old white.

Here is the end result:
Badly staged in my dining room. It is even still on the wheels.

Dry Brushed and Waxed


My favorite tea cups in my lame attempt at staging. The school year has started and I had to let staging go on this project.
 
It's new home at the shop. Just waiting for Christie's magic staging touch.
