Depression Era Hutch II

I loved the first antique hutch I found.  I always wish I had two of everything, so I can see what they would look like painted differently.  I haven't been able to find very many good pieces lately so I practically jumped off my couch when I saw this beauty on CL! 

 I listed it as a piece available for refinishing even though I already had an idea what I wanted to do with it.  It sold right away and I was a little bummed because I didn't think I would get my way (haha ;) ).  Well, fate was smiling down on me again and my client and I were on the same page, so I got to do it how I wanted and have it sell right away!! Woo hoo! :)



You know what I'm going to say, right?  I la-la-la love it!!!

 Check out all those yummy legs!!

 She picked out a picture of a hutch done in Old White and Coco (ASCP) and I took it to Sherwin Williams and found colors that were close.  I ended up using Decor White and Virtual Taupe.  I loved the taupe but it was a little blah so I stained over it Dark Walnut and it made the color so rich.  It looks so good against all that creamy white.  

 Check out these stunning knobs.  There was no way I was going to change out this hardware.  They were looking a little rough so I just went over them with some Danish Oil in Dark Walnut.  It's a stain and sealer in one, so I just wiped on and wiped off.  Easy peasy!

 She wanted a pop of color inside so I used Duck Egg (the real thing).   When they built it they actually put the shelves in and then put the back on and let me tell you this is one solid piece off furniture--there was no way that back was coming off!  The shelves wouldn't come out so I had to paint around them.  Not so fun.  

 This is so my favorite part of the whole thing!   She has a great curvy skirt and this perfect little detail to set it off.

Have a fantastic weekend!!
