Oak Hall Tree

This hall tree came from a secret spot ;) and I thought it could be so cute! Craig knew right away that I would love it.  Have I told you lately that I have the most wonderful, awesome, and incredible husband that ever lived?  Well, if I haven't I am now!! :)

Before




 After


I used French Blue from Old Town Paints and then whitewashed it (which I rarely do).  I normally hate painting oak because the grain is so heavy and doesn't leave a nice smooth finish, BUT I really love how the white paint brought out the grain!  It's more noticeable on the sides than the front.


 I kept the original knobs because I loved the color of them with the paint color. 


 And, there's nothing like a crisp white for the inside of a piece!  It's such a clean look and begging for someone to put their pretty things in there!


 Great detailing that was lost in the wood, but not anymore!






Cute little feet...



This is one that's way better in person, but I hope you get the idea! :)

This piece will be available at my upcoming Refuge Home Decor Event on April 26th, 10-2

  1. Love it! I'm going to an auction Saturday.....I have my eyes on a very curvy "Frenchie" dresser and 1930s/40s buffet. Fingers crossed.

  2. It looks great in the pictures, Lisa. I love that color! The white on the inside is perfect. I don't think I've ever seen a hall tree with a cabinet attached like this. Very versatile piece for someone living in a small space.
