A Hutch…. a year later

Our business started because we refinished a hutch for our own kitchen and having enjoyed the project so much, we thought we might try doing a few more pieces and seeing if they’d sell.  Who knew that a year later, this would be such a big part of our life.  IMG_0716.JPG

We came by this beautiful early 1960’s solid wood French Provincial hutch made by Basset Furniture and gave it a completely refreshed look with a rich deep gray milk paint, Queenstown Gray, by General Finishes.

I knew Basil Green would be a lovely compliment for the interior whether this keeps dishes, glassware, books or collectibles.  I used a glazing technique with Champagne Pearl Effects and Winter White glaze to give the green a slightly pearlescent finish.  I found a graphic printed paper and finished the back of the piece as an offset.  Finally, we restored the original hardware with a gold leaf.  We love how this one turned out and I can’t wait to see where it finds its next home.

Here’s the original magazine ad for the furniture collection.  I love researching the history of everything authentic that enters the shop.
