Shabby chic farmhouse hutch

I have been on a roll with furniture this week. I spent the past couple of days painting a maple hutch. It looked pretty good, but personally I am not into dated wood pieces such as this. The before photo I am showing is from the actual Craigslist post I found it on. Apparently they used it as a liquor cabinet. Wonder what they would think of what I have done to it???


I painted it with a very pale blue color and distressed it. The piece is much happier now in it's after state. I don't think it liked being used to house alcohol.

  4. You find such cool pieces, Lisa! AND...you have such a good eye! I see old furniture and think SOMETHING could be done to make it look better, then I can't think of what to do, so I don't buy it. (Not that I have room to store a bunch of stuff anyway!)

    I love how this turned out!

  5. Hey Lisa!
    I was given a piece similar to this and just bought chalk paint for it yesterday. I can't wait to paint it. Mine is all wood but looking at yours makes me want to get some seed glass for the doors! Hmmmmm....

  14. I don't think it liked being stored for alcohol either. I'm sure it appropriates its beautiful new paint job.
