Silverware hutch to jewelry chest

Remember months ago I showed you some finds from a furniture consignment store. This silverware hutch was among them.



It's right outside our master bath in the hallway to my closet. Perfect stop to add some bling for the day.

It's slightly distressed in the Robin's Egg chalk paint.
I'm lining the drawers with fun fabric (on the to-do-list!).

Another finished piece: distressed hutch

1/2 before: I thought I had taken a before picture but I didn't!! It was the old style brown and had plexiglass behind the top latticed metal doors.

Sorry for the poor display in the garage. But if you squint, can't you see it in a well decorated room!

Amazing distressing with the much talked about chalk paint in off white with clear wax. That stuff is truly cool! It feels so smooth without sanding or priming and only one coat.

Distressed detail. Original hardware was perfect untouched.

I wish I had a place for it in my house.

Finally...some finished pieces to share

Fireside chairs from an auction

The original fabric from 30+ years ago. Screamed for some updating!

Striped the old fabric


painted black

The finished back of the chair is a striped black/white which was also used as the cording for the front.
