I FINALLY got my dining hutch finished! And I just can't stop staring at her :) With all her lovely curves and little details, she's come a long way since her orangey-brown original state!
I found her for $12 at my local thrift shop and she's been sitting in my garage, waiting for her makeover for a month. A few coats of paint....first primer, then white, then grey (well, sort of a grey/blue that I mixed up in my garage)....a little distressing and new Anthropologie mercury glass knobs, and there you have her. I was waiting for someone to arrive and help my husband carry her up the stairs, but I surprised myself and found that I've grown a lot stronger lately! It must be carrying my little (big) Finn around all the time! He started off big (10lbs 6oz!) and has been growing steadily ever since. The hutch actually felt quite light, if you can believe that! LOVE the mom muscles! ;)
Dining chair slipcovers make a perfect hiding place for little boys!
This is the before picture....in my garage full of strollers and thrift shop furniture!
