Depression Era Hutch in black

I was so excited when my client opened up the back of the trailer and this and a matching buffet were sitting there!  I absolutely love these Depression Era hutches.  This one has birds eye maple for the trim work (some of you might be cursing  me for painting over it), but there was a lot of veneer damage and someone had already refinished it previously, so.... ;)

After discussing colors in the room where it would be we decided black was her best option.  I've done a lot of black in the last few years, and at times I think, "Not black AGAIN...", but it really is timeless and so beautiful when finished. 


I took these pictures in a hurry because we seemed to be having a windstorm at the time and all kinds of garbage was flying in my clean garage! :)


There is so much detailing on these two pieces and I love how the distressing makes them pop.

 This is my favorite part of the whole piece! Lol  

Great legs!  I used these knobs because she isn't sure what she wants yet and I happened to have two of them in my stash.  I still love them though.

I will be gone for the next two days so the buffet should be finished by the end of the week! 


  1. Soooo beautiful! I see what you mean about "black again?" but you're is SO timeless and simply gorgeous!!


  2. Wow! What a fantastic piece to work with, and you did it so incredibly well!

  3. Love the painting job - it's an AWESOME piece. Not fond of the nobs, but they're temporary so that's good I guess lol. LOVE black painted furniture. Never get sick of seeing it, I assure you! Well done, it is amazing.

  4. This turned out absolutely gorgeous! Love the lines....and I love black furniture, too!

  5. Oh I love how this turned out! I still haven't painted any furniture black yet. I seem to be stuck in a rut with the blues and whites. What type of paint did you use on this one?
