Last spring just as the weather was starting to clear up, I decided to get out of the craziness that comes with a sick family and a room remodel (that seems to last forever), I decided to bring life to an old hutch!
Isn't it lovely?
The top of the hutch looked really great apart from the fake gold medal panels. As I was attempting to remove them the glass broke! HUMPH...
So after contemplating if I should replace the glass from my ill planned removal, or to go a completely different direction I decided to revamp the entire thing and go for Wow!
Here it is! After taking off the doors I had to do some chiseling, and sanding, it wasn't being very nice to me...
I cut trim to the appropriate sizes to fit nicely along the bare edges.
Next I primed...
Do you like my use of trash bags? Last minute solution..
After a coat of cream paint, and some high quality finish this is the ending result!
Oh how I LOVE that crown molding!
This is my tip to you, instead of spending $400.00 + on a hutch, find a $40.00-$60.00 hutch with similar lines and fix it up! It will give you satisfaction that you did it yourself, as well as pride in your home.
What do you think?!?
Here it is staged at Finders Keepers!
